The SHERCO TVS Factory Team riders have found the Morocco rally to be very complicated, with some very complex and dangerous stages.
“Sometimes rally racing is very difficult, says David Casteu. And we had the proof of that today.”
Lorenzo Santolino finished eighth: “Lorenzo was the last rider to leave this morning because of yesterday’s problem. He produced a fantastic ride thanks to some very nice navigation. We will be able to count on him for the Dakar. He is a rider to watch for the rest of his career. ”
“Abdul Wahid continues to ride on at a very good pace, he continues to surprise us despite the difficulty of the competition. ”
Adrien Metge did not finish the stage: “Adrien fell heavily in the rocks. He was injured but it is not serious. ”
Noah Harite also did not finish the stage: “Noah is off to a good start, he showed us some nice things but unfortunately he had a small crash near the finish. ”
“We had done a lot of preparation work on the bikes before this Morocco rally and we were pretty relaxed, concludes team manager David Casteu. However, there is a lot of work to be done to leave here and move on to the Dakar. But we are a united and motivated team and we will get there! “
