Toby Price: “There are ups and downs”

January 5 th 2021 - 12:38 [GMT + 3]

The winner of the 2016 and 2019 editions is alternating between good and less good. Today he won his second special of the year and lies 1’52’’ behind the new general standings leader, Skyler Howes.

“So far, it’s been up and down. It’s quite frustrating to be in front one day and then at the back the next. The difficulty of the navigation means it’s hard to open the road. I’m going to have to do it tomorrow, but I hope there’ll be a bit of respite and that it will be a day that’s less complicated on the navigational front. The result doesn’t mean much, because there are ups and downs. But anyway, it’s been a good day for me. The bike’s working well, I didn’t fall and I didn’t have any fuel problems like yesterday. Every day is going to count right up until the last one, but so far there have been no major problems”.
