British Dakar Rally racers Sam Sunderland and Lyndon Poskitt were treated to a taste of home after Monday's tricky 161km special stage of the race – when they bumped into fans from home equipped with Yorkshire tea and were able to stop off for a quick cuppa!

Bumping into the British fans on the liaison stage at the end of yesterday’s timed stage, the pair spotted a Union Jack flag and bag of Yorkshire teabags being waved from the side of the road – and after a cold day on the road, were more than happy to avail of it!

Anthony Ware is a friend of Poskitt's who rode to South American with the malle moto rider from Alaska as part of his Races to Places build-up for the event.

The KTM rider, currently in podium contention for the unsupported malle moto class, was also able to update us on the conditions so far as well, by recording a quick video update while he was stopped.
