Laurent Lazard had some problems with the gear box and lost precious time, finishing in the 160th position, 1h 48´07´´ from today´s leader. The French-Uruguayan rider takes then the 128th place overall.
“I broke the gear box at km 18, and I had to run all timed section in 4th. I´m glad to be at the finish, but I rode slowly for 700 km!
But for tomorrow´s stage we are going to change the engine, because I have to be there to support David.
Tomorrow I start 160th, it bothers me being so far from David, but I´ll go calmly. I hope to climb day by day. From tomorrow, I hope to get to the first 50s. I will have to overtake quads and bikes in the dust, but my wounds are better, and it´s important to be there for David.”
Next Stage….
