PISCO, Peru (AP) - Defending champion Stephane Peterhansel took the overall lead in the Dakar Rally on Sunday by winning a treacherous second stage around Pisco that was costly for some title favorites.

Peterhansel, the rally's most successful driver with 10 victories, took more than two and a half hours to complete the 149-mile loop around the Peruvian city that was entirely on sand, resulting in a record 60th career stage win for the man they call ``Mr. Dakar.''

In jumping from sixth to first in the overall standings, the Frenchman in the Mini gave all the credit to co-driver Jean-Paul Cottret, who has been beside him for all of his record-tying four wins in a car, following six on motorcycles.
