Laia Sanz: Nunca hubiera imaginado que un día podría acabar entre los diez primeros. Cuando he llegado al refueling y he visto que no venía nadie detrás he empezado a pensar que estaba haciendo una buena etapa, but thought it would be among the first fifteen, no la novena. I'm super happy, but every day just so. It is still a Dakar very good for me. I feel good with my riding and the bike is amazing, and also the results accompany. What else I can ask?. El duodécimo puesto del año pasado estuvo muy bien, but underneath was a rare stage in which many people lost. Esta vez ha sido en una etapa normal y eso me hace estar más satisfecha aún. Hacia el kilómetro 200 I crashed the button of the road book and I had to go through the pages manually so that at times I had to lose some pace. I think it has gone well until, porque en las dunas quizá eso me haya hecho navegar mejor. La etapa ha sido muy rápida y tenía algunos peligros serios, but I rode very concentrated avoiding any risk. The last 50 kilometers of dunes have been spectacular, especially when you culminas the big dune and see the ocean. It was a special day.
