And yet another great day for GasGas at Dakar! The team is consistently posting impressive stage times and quality navigational work.

Jonny Aubert rocketed across Argentina today to an superb 7th place stage time while Barragan and Espana came in at 21st and 22nd respectively.

This moves the three riders to 7th, 16th, and 32nd overall.

Great work GasGas!


I was also sad to see Barreda drop out today. He has been far more resilient than in previous years with a much improved attitude. I do hope he will be back again next year with an improved mental ability and his same fast times.
I too am still gutted today for AVB. I really was hoping this would be his year.


Here's to hoping Benevides can hold the orange boys off for a few more days to take a podium position himself.

Still a day and a half left. But I can't see anyone catching Walkner at this point. Hopefully Benevides can block them from a total 1,2,3 again on the podium.

He can still take the 15m penalty if he decides to swap the engine just to be on the safe side that will not affect the overall result .
Who could have guessed such an outcome for this year's edition ? Really though this year .
