Marc Coma finishes his more complicated Dakar
The pilot AMV Marc Coma (KTM), winner of the 2006 and 2009 editions, completed today, more than 9,000 km that have shaped the 32th edition of the legendary Dakar rally. A total of 57 hours 43 minutes and 23 seconds was the total time the pilot AMV has taken to travel the 4717km of timed divided into fourteen stages that formed the Rally Dakar Argentina-Chile 2010. The numbers speak for themselves: an average of 82.75 km / h on the timed, 4717 km, we can approach a little closer to reality one of the toughest events on the planet.
The brutal action by the pilot Marc Coma, along the fourteen days that has lasted the race, not only dignify him as one of the greatest drivers in the history of Dakar, and the world of motoring, but also has the opportunity to learn a little more, the great professionalism of a fighter. It is recalled that after the tough sanctions that the pilot received by the organization, which is accused of making a change, lack, of his rear wheel in a timed section, the pilot assessed the possibility of leaving the race intentionally with the will to express their disagreement with the undeserved punishment received. However, the pilot, true to his sponsors, his team, his determination and his truth, decided to continue to demonstrate, on the track who is and where it goes.
10 podiums, divided in 5 wins, 3 second places and 2 third, support the potential of a pilot who has fought, 80% of the route of the rally, against his own truth.
Today Marc Coma was able to breathe a little more. And despite the apparent difficulty to overcome a situation as complicated as you have lived, the pilot could not let anything out of his big challenge. Today, the stage that joined the villages of Santa Rosa and Buenos Aires, has witnessed the great effort that the pilot has done, always upstream to the back of his KTM and with his gaze fixed on the horizon.
Today's stage, a mere formality to complete more than 9,000 kilometers along the fourteen days, did not harbor any major technical difficulty, 206 km were the special. Thus, without any intention of entering the fight at the front, Marc Coma was eighth in which it was the last stage of the Dakar more complicated in his history.
