“There was a lot of dust”

Despite starting way down the field, the Chilean rider managed to grab the second best time of the day… and climb up to second place in the general standings, 1’03’’ behind Toby Price.

“The stage was really hard and I started behind the trucks and the cars, so there was a lot of dust when I had to pass them. But, I’m happy to finish the day. Now we’ll rest a little bit for tomorrow. Tomorrow is difficult because we’ll be starting with a mass start so it’s difficult to gain time, but I will keep on like this until the end”.
