Price a step closer to Dakar crown


Southern Highlands-grown dirt bike rider Toby Price is hoping to secure his third Dakar Rally crown after placing third in the 662 kilometre stage five race overnight.

A member of the Australian Red Bull KTM Factory team, Price is ranked fourth overall in the bike category of the gruelling 12-stage race through the desert in Saudia Arabia.

Price placed first on the first and third day and has his sights on the top spot after winning the event in 2016 and 2019.
