The Husqvarna rider finished sixth today and remains within striking distance of the podium, fourth at just 2’34” behind Ignacio Cornejo.
“It’s incredible, the second week started exactly the same as the first one. Perhaps the first gaps will start to open up, if I can seize the opportunity. I hoped to catch the lead group quickly this morning and benefit on a mass blunder, but it didn’t happen. We’re still having fun.
Today, I rode alongside my former teammate and great friend Franco Caimi, we had a blast. As part of my agreement with Husqvarna, I have to take care of the official KTM and Husqvarna motorbikes as well as Laia’s Gas-Gas, so I hope they won’t crash and I won’t have to do too much mechanical work.”
