San Rafael - Mendoza On a shortened 6th stage, Cyril Despres grabbed his first special stage victory on the Dakar in 2009. For once free of tire trouble, the Frenchman beat off his rival Marc Coma. The Spanish rider increased his advantage in the general standings and now boasts a lead of 40 minutes over Jonah Street, his nearest rival. Al Attiyah was again out at the front of the field in the car race, but may have only scored a Pyrrhic victory.
