Dutchman Gerard De Rooy is leading the trucks in Dakar overall with an FTP Cursor 13 powered Iveco Powerstar, and looking damn good doing it.

He's easy to spot— a truck without a cab-over engine is rare at Dakar, and Iveco's signature team teal stands out in the desert like a 900 horsepower junebug as it mashes its way over dunes.

De Rooy is holding off the verable Kamaz vehicles so far, the teal truck team means business.
