SAN MIGUEL DE TUCUMAN, Argentina - Spanish driver Nani Roma reclaimed the Dakar Rally lead on Thursday as compatriot Marc Coma soared to the top of the motorcycling standings.That was after a brutal Stage 5 which saw temperatures close to 40 degrees – but at least this year the teams have been allowed aircon in their vehicles.Roma, behind the wheel of a Mini, had led after three stages. He reasserted his authority on the gruelling 912km run from Chilecito to San Miguel de Tucuman on Thursday (Jan 9 2014).'HAPPY WITH THE DAY'Roma clocked 4hr27min01 on the 527km timed section of the stage with South Africa's Giniel de Villiers (Toyota Hilux) second and only 4min20 back on the stage and America's Robby Gordon (Hummer) who is third. In the overall standings, Roma now has a lead of 26min28 on 2011 winner and Mini team mate, Nasser al-Attiyah of Qatar.De Villiers is fifth overall in the race.Roma said later: "I'm happy with the day but it was hard, probably one of the hardest stages I've ever driven. We tried to do our best and to just get through it. We got stuck in the sand a bit, but only lost 10 minutes. The others had bigger problems."Carlos Sainz, 2010 champion who had led on Wednesday, slumped to sixth and almost an hour behind Roma after a nightmare day during which the Spanish veteran endured a number of navigational errors."First we had a problem to find the way point. We couldn't find it. We need to check now what has happened because I think we had been passing really, really close," said the Spaniard. "Then, as we were going up and down trying to find it, we had a problem with the car.“We had to stop - one of the electrical connections was coming out."Al-Attiyah added: "From the navigation side of things it was very tough. What can we do? We lost a lot of minutes but we are here and we still have 10 days left. We'll try to do our best. We must really push a lot now. We'll see."MOTORCYCLESThe motorcycling section of the race was shortened as the heat was deemed to be close to danger levels for the riders. Former champion Coma (KTM) was declared the stage winner in a time of 3hr02min08, with fellow Spaniard Jordi Viladoms second and Kuba Przygonski of Poland third."It was another tough day,” Coma said. “It was really hot out there. It was also difficult in terms of navigation because of rain the previous week which makes it difficult to see anything."To get to the end of the stage I rode for 10km lost in a river bed. In general, it's tough for everyone. For the race lead, you can lose lots of time at any moment. When you open the way, it's a bit like playing Russian roulette."In the overall standings, Coma has a 41min10 lead on Honda's Joan Barreda, the previous leader.Dakar Rally results after Thursday's Stage 5, a 527km timed run from Chilecito to TucumanCarsStage1 Nani Roma/Michel Prin (ESP/FRA/Mini) 4hr27min012 Giniel de Villiers/Dirk Von Zitzewitz (RSA/GER/Toyota) 4min203 Robby Gordon/Kellon Walch (USA/USA/Hummer) 20min124 Orlando Terranova/Paulo Fiuza (ARG/POR/Mini) 20min445 Nasser al-Attiyah/Lucas Cruz (QAT/ESP/Mini) 21min386 Stephane Peterhansel/Jean Paul Cottret (FRA/FRA/Mini) 23min557 Lucio Alvarez/Bernardo Graue (ARG/ARG/Ford) 25min458 Adam Malysz/Rafal Marton (POL/POL/Toyota) 27min189 Marek Dabrowski/Jacek Czachor (POL/POL/Toyota) 29min2010 Federico Villagra/Jorge Perez Companc (ARG/ARG/Mini) 57min36Overall (after five stages)1 Nani Roma/Michel Prin (ESP/FRA/Mini) 19hr21min542 Nasser Al-attiyah/Lucas Cruz (QAT/ESP/Mini) 26min283 Orlando Terranova/Paulo Fiuza (ARG/POR/Mini) 31min464 Stephane Peterhansel/Jean Paul Cottret (FRA/FRA/Mini) 39min595 Giniel de Villiers/Dirk Von Zitzewitz (RSA/GER/Toyota) 41min246 Carlos Sainz/Timo Gttschalk (ESP/GER/Smg) 59min437 Federico Villagra/Jorge Perez Companc (ARG/ARG/Mini) 1hr42min428 Marek Dabrowski/Jacek Czachor (POL/POL/Toyota) 1hr45min589 Adam Malysz/Rafal Marton (POL/POL/Toyota) 2hr31min5610 Robby Gordon/Kellon Walch (USA/USA/Hummer) 4hr34min29MotorcyclesStage1 Marc Coma (ESP/KTM) 3hr02min082 Jordi Viladoms (ESP/KTM) +12min543 Kuba Przygonski (POL/KTM) +22min454 Helder Rodrigues (POR/Honda) +25min535 Riaan Van Niekerk (RSA/KTM) +32min046 Juan Carlos Salvatierra (BOL/Speedbrain) +33min127 Juan Pedrero (ESP/Sherco) +34min038 Stefan Svitko (SVK/KTM) +36min389 Robert Van Pelt (NED/Honda) +37min0410 Daniel Gouet (CHI/Honda) +37min53Overall standings (after five stages) (amended with penalties)1 Nani Roma/Michel Prin (ESP/FRA/Mini) 19hr21min542 Orlando Terranova/Paulo Fiuza (ARG/POR/Mini) 31min463 Stephane Peterhansel/Jean Paul Cottret (FRA/FRA/Mini) 39min594 Giniel de Villiers/Dirk von Zitzewitz (RSA/GER/Toyota) 41min245 Nasser Al-Attiyah/Lucas Cruz (QAT/ESP/Mini) 26min28 (penalty 1hr)6 Lavieille/Garcin (FRA/FRA/Haval) 21hr03min44 +1hr41min507 Marek Dabrowski/Jacek Czachor (POL/POL/Toyota) 21hr07min52 +01h45min588 Sainz/Gottschalk (ESP/DEU/SMG 21hr21min37 01hr59min33 (penalty 1hr)9 Thomassa/Larroque (FRA/FRA Buggy MD Rallye) 21hr34min04 +2hr12min1010 Holowczyc / Zhiltsov (RUS/RUS/Mini ) 21h44min53 +2hr22min59US - Stage 5 - Car/Bike - Stage Summary... by Dakar Bookmark Wheels24's special Dakar Rally section to keep up with event news and results.
