The Chilean biker could almost taste his first ever Dakar stage win, only to be denied by Sam Sunderland at the last minute. On the bright side, he now stands on the provisional podium.
"The first part was really fast, so it took me 220 or 240 kilometres to catch Ricky. We then took turns opening the track. I think we did a great job, it was physically and mentally exhausting. We won't be forgetting this stage any time soon because some parts were so rocky that we thought we were going the wrong way."
