KTM's 3-times Dakar winner Marc Coma on Saturday underlined he is King of the Desert by taking overall victory in the first ever Sealine Rally in Qatar.

The win means that Coma has now won both rallies of the FIM Cross Country World Championship held so far with two to go in Sardinia and Egypt.

In what was an extremely fast final desert leg, Coma finished 2:06 minutes behind his Spanish compatriot Joan Barreda whose chances of winning were scrapped two days ago after he incurred a 2-hour penalty for missing a control point.

Coma rounded off what has been a great week's ride by securing the overall victory from Portugal's Helder Rodrigues by a margin of six minutes. The top 10 finishers averaged speeds of between 109.4 and 102. 3 kmh.

"Today was very fast and it was 208 km but there was nothing very difficult for me." stated Coma.

"I tried to have fun and stay focused and to control the race. The bike worked perfectly and the tam prepared everything very well." he added

"It was our first time here so it’s nice to have the victory and it is a good start to the World Championship." concluded Spaniard

KTM rider Jordi Villadoms, also of Spain rounded off the final podium. Jakub Przgonski of Poland was fourth and Coma's factory teammate Ruben Faria of Portugal finished fifth.
