Past dakar winners

Any theories on why the winners of the Dakar are predominently Italian (6) or French (19 wins) ?
there are only 4 Nationalities of people to ever win the Dakar ,and all from countries that don't have deserts!!
see below for past winners.
Plenty other nationalities have made it to the podium ,but not on top.
Considering there are up to 43 different nationalities entered each year (later years,not so many in the early history of Dakar).
it would be interesting to hear others theories.
