Peterhansel extends lead in Dakar to 10 minutes

SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Stephane Peterhansel boosted his lead in the Dakar Rally to 10 minutes after teammate Nani Roma won the fifth stage on Wednesday.

Peterhansel's Mini finished second to Roma's on the relatively short 172-kilometer stage on the Peru side of the border with Chile. After enduring sand dunes since the race started on Saturday, drivers sprinted through rocky sections, riverbeds and canyons.

The motorbikes navigated a different 136-kilometer route from Arequipa toward the Pacific coast, and Olivier Pain became the first rider to hold on to the overall lead. Only six minutes separate the leading trio, all of them Frenchmen.
