Oriol Mena, after his great stage today, told us: “Happy with today's stage. The truth is that it has been a very intense day. It has been a very demanding stage, both mentally and physically. There has been a lot of variety of terrain, fast tracks, very stony rivers, a good part of dunes. Happy, happy with the pace, with how I feel with the bikes these last days. I wish this Dakar would last another week, but there is only one day left, and we want to enjoy it to the max, as we have done today. And that's it, reflect on it and not obsess with the problems that happened at the beginning because they have no solution. One step at a time, one day at a time, and I'm happy to have brought my bike here in the team.”
