Hoy ha finalizado el rally más famoso del mundo, es el antes conocido como Paris-Dakar y Granada-Dakar y que ahora se corre en sudamérica. El español Marc Coma ha quedado primero en la categoría de motos y Carlos Sainz tercero ganando varias etapas. Comparto con vosotros esta edición de imágenes del Dakar 2011 que he ido recolpilando todos los días en el periódico. Impresionantes imágenes tomadas desde el helicoptero, el agua o la arena del desierto. Una delicia para los amantes de la aventura, los coches y la fotografía deportiva.
