Dakar SA team face tough competition in stage 7
The Dakar Toyota team are well aware of what they're up against in the next gruelling stage.
ARGENTINA, Salta - He may be enjoying his well-earned rest but Giniel de Villiers is still weary of the competition ahead of stage seven.
He and Dirk Von Zitzewits are currently fourth in the standings, just under 41 minutes adrift of overall lead Nani Roma.
The Toyota Imperial driver reckons any of the top five have a chance at winning the race.
"Maybe the other guys are a bit too far back, and Nani has a big lead but like we saw in the first week, one or two days the guys lose 20, 25 to 30 minutes a day, it can happen so like I said we'll keep on pushing and keep on fighting."
Following Saturday's rest day, the 2014 Dakar Rally continues with Stage 7 on Sunday 12 January.
Stage seven will take riders 486 miles from Salta to Uyuni in Bolivia. This will be the second marathon stage of the race where riders will not have any help from their assistance teams.
