MARC COMA Pilot AMV: "Today's stage in which we completed 300 competitive kilometers, full of jumps and elevation changes, has been very technical but also very funny. In the first part I managed to overtake Ruben Faria, and have accelerated the pace to make up the time but in the most technical I've decided to slow down. The rally will be tougher as we go forward and we now turn to the north of the country in two days we will cross the border. Tomorrow we have a very complicated stage and 521 kms ahead and we timed the challenge full of energy. Joan yesterday made a stellar performance and again he demonstrated the great potential it has. The bike worked perfectly in all conditions and we face the stage of tomorrow with confidence. "
