    St├ęphane Peterhansel won the Dakar 2012 over the past weekend. During the 46-year-old Frenchman's off-road career he has won the race an impressive 19 times, in various classes, since his debut in 1991. This year he won 3 of the 14 stages and, thanks to no major reported problems, finished the 5205 brutal miles from Argentina to Peru almost 42 minutes faster than second-place finisher Nani Roma from Spain.


    There was quite a bit of drama played out over the course of the last 5 or so stages, after Robby Gordon was accused of using his tire inflation system to boost his motor's performance and many thought Peterhansel should have been reprimanded and penalized for clipping an Italian motorbike racer on the course. Robby maintained his innocence and cited the fact that the tech inspectors passed his vehicle. Gordon even went so far as to plug the system and won Stage 12 to prove it did not affect performance. Robby also won three of the 14 stages and finished fifth overall with a time of +02:16:53. He came as close as second place over the course of the race, but had several poor days with various mechanical problems, something he knew would weaken his chances at his first Dakar win.
