Sam Sunderland came out on top in the loop around San Juan de Marcona. He now stands less than 10 minutes behind the new overall leader, Ricky Brabec. The British rider, fourth overall, is just one second ahead of Pablo Quintanilla, who lost time today.
"Yesterday was a big disappointment. I rode fast and navigated well, but the type of special played into the hands of the others. My rear brake problem obviously didn't help. Today, apart from losing three or four minutes looking for a waypoint, the special went well. I wanted to push hard this morning and it paid off."
