Laia Sanz: Today did not expect to end or between 30 first. At first there was so much dust and the track was so close that he could see nothing and could not go more than 30 km/h, when there could roll 140 km/h. It was hopeless, but then opened a little way and I used to give gas and advance a few. A little later, in a fairly technical area, I have been able to overcome a group of motorcycles and from there because I could roll with more pace. I am very happy that end the 20 es un gran resultado tal como se presentaba el día. El año pasado, the day before the break and did a 12th place in the next stage the engine broke down and spent an ordeal, así que hasta que no llegue a Valparaíso no daré nada por conseguido. Me sabe muy mal lo sucedido con Eric Palante, for him and his family. It is also a blow to all who are in the race, because every time a tragedy like this happens it gives you a lot to think. Este deporte desgraciadamente tiene estas terribles consecuencias algunas veces. Quiero pensar que la segunda semana será menos dura que esta primera porque sino acabarán muy pocos.
