11th today at 4'50", the Frenchman keeps matching the pace of the factory bikers ahead of him on the road. Michael Docherty beat him today to finish second in the special, but "Dudu" remains in the lead of the Rally2 category and sixteenth overall. The runner-up to Mason Klein in the 2022 WRC continues to show who's boss.
"It was a cool stage, but you have to be careful because there are a lot of broken dunes and you never know what's on the other side. We got up very early this morning, but fortunately the special was short. I really took no risks. I just want to get to the bivouac and take a nap. When I finished, I was surprised to have the best time of the top 5. I also thought that the guys behind were going to catch me, but they didn't, which means I rode well."
