Marc Coma finishes third but he gets a penalty

The pilot AMV Marc Coma (KTM), today concluded the second stage of Dakar Rally Argentina-Chile occupy, for the second consecutive time, the third with a gap of 1'51 minutes with the first-placed Frenchman David Fretigne (YAMAHA ), who ran the 294 km that formed the stage today in a time of 3: 59.20 seconds. I followed closely, his fellow Frenchman David Casteu, who, at the controls of a Sherco was second at the finish of La Rioja.

The pilot AMV Marc Coma (KTM), received an unexpected news about the imposition of a penalty of 22 minutes in general, roll exceeding the permitted speeding in a restricted zone for doubtful yesterday's stage. Obviously, the penalty directly harm the Spanish pilot despite having no intention of giving up. Contingencies daily coexist with the pilots in the toughest test of the planet and thus give the talented pilot 1ForAll budge. The penalty comes at a critical time when we consider the controversy generated by the entry into force, encouraged by the organization, the new legislation that encourages the implementation of the new 450cc engine and mandating the use of an inlet restrictor on bikes of a cylinder capacity as is the case of Marc may be recalled that the rider Marc Coma AMV pilots a KTM 690. After application of the sanction the pilot occupies the fourteenth place overall but his motivation and his desire to shine not prevent tomorrow morning, his heart, his momentum and all his wisdom continue undaunted by his only goal: victory.

Today's stage housed two very distinct parts between them. The first, much faster than the second, mostly developed on a slippery slope and the handicap of having to overcome a gap along the first 50 km, 1000 m. The output Cordoba located 1,120 m above sea gave way to a rugged area about 30 km long, rather more rocky, which, the rose to 2,000 m altitude. Then descended gradually until you find the most complicated of the day. The many rocks did not allow any room for error in terms of driving point, and the pilots were able experience managing very effectively.
