Husqvarna driver Skyler Howes took fourth place after 274 kilometers of special stage in the sandy desert of Rub al Khali from Kevin Benavides (KTM). The stage win went to Howes’ brand colleague Luciano Benavides for the third time. Matthias Walkner only came in 13th, in the overall standings the man from Salzburg is still tenth. Walkner lost over eight minutes in the empty quarter after a misdirection followed by an involuntary stop in a sand hole.

“I got in well, but then made a stupid navigation mistake at 60 kilometers and lost two minutes, so not that dramatically,” explained Walkner. Unfortunately, on the way back to the correct route, he got stuck. With three stages to go, the Kuchler is almost 45 minutes behind the leaders.
