Welby's Price smashing the Dakar Rally


Southern Highlands-grown off-road motorcylist Toby Price has his third Dakar Rally title firmly in his sights, after his second stage win in the Saudi Arabian desert over night.

Lead rider in the Red Bull KTM Factory team, Price took out stage three - a 403 kilometre loop around Wadi Ad-Dawasir - after winning the first stage on Monday.

The win places Price in fourth position overall, one minute and 52 seconds behind the leader, American Skyler Howes.

Price, who grew up in Welby, has won the gruelling bike category twice previously, in 2016 and 2019.
