The big news at the Dakar this year wasn't that multi-time winner Cyril Despres won or that KTM dominated the standings yet again, it's that a privateer team running a reportedly unreliable Aprilia RXV 4.5 managed to place third overall after 14 grueling stages over South America's toughest off-road terrain. Above, you'll find eight of our favorite so-far-unpublished photos (sadly, we don't have access to this one) and below there's three highlight videos with all the action.  >
