El Akad Wins Stage Three but Ahansal Remains Leader

Morocco's Aziz el Akad won stage three of the Marathon des Sables race on Tuesday (April 9), crossing a series of peaks in the desert before reaching Jebel Mouchanne after 38 kilometres (23 miles). Second was Jordan's Salameh Al Aqra with overall leader Mohamad Ahansal of Morocco third. Samir Akhdar of Morocco was fourth with Spain's Miguel Capo Soler fifth. Ahansal appears to be playing a tactical card by finishing third and not tiring himself before the fourth stage which is long.
