The pilot KH-7 has finished 19th and the 17th floor general position, pero a sólo un minuto y medio del top 15. He has sacrificed a good result to avoid risks in fifth stage marked by the fesh-fesh, an awkward and dangerous surface. "”

I knew before starting and suspicions were unfounded. And indeed, so it has been. The special has consisted of a faster first part, where Broad lapped with a solid pace, but in the second half, the land has been increasingly uncomfortable for the champion KH-7.
Laia Sanz: "I have finished quite tired after a tiresome step. Today I decided to take it easy because the fesh-fesh is very dangerous and is easy to take a fall and hit the bike with stones that are hidden below. I knew that today would lose positions, but it was the right choice, i believe. Better than risk losing a few minutes. At the end, I have not had any downtime, the bike is good and I also, plus pilots that I'm struggling not have brought me so much, so I'm happy. Tomorrow I think it will be a good day because we Iquique dunes and is a type of surface on which I feel very comfortable ".
