After eight difficult stages at the 2013 Dakar Rally, Moose Racing’s Jordi Viladoms is still in it following two stages that could have taken him out of the race. Fighting bike issues with minimal tools and help, Viladoms successfully made it to the end of the stage. With only a few hours of sleep before Stage 8, Viladoms finished 19th and was able to enjoy a well-deserved rest day on Sunday before picking back up for Stage 9 on Monday.
