The PH-Sport driver conceded 1 h 15 today, but he is still on the provisional podium between Nani Roma and Jakub Przygoński.

"I think we were doing a really good stage, pushing hard from the start, but at kilometre 250 or something like this we had a broken transmission. We had to change it, it's quite tough to do, but we have a spare one, so we changed it. Maybe we made a little mistake, we lost a lot of time trying to put a clips. Finally, we decided to go like this and it broke again, so we had to wait for Pierre [Lachaume] to give us his spare transmission. We changed it again, [it took] a long time and now we're here. That's just the way it is."
