The Argentinean Honda rider was 2nd on today’s stage and is also 2nd in the general standings, a little more than thirty seconds behind Skyler Howes.
“Today was a nice day. I started at the back, but I kept focused all day and pushed a lot. I think I did a good job. I don’t know the results yet, but I feel good, so that was okay for me. This Dakar is really different than before. Now we are some days at the back, some days at the front. Maybe tomorrow I’ll have to open or something, but, for sure, this Dakar is like a game of strategy. I feel so good with the bike and strong, so I’m just calm. My strategy is to take it day by day”.
