The South American continent represents a very important challenge for all of us but it seems that the differences among the participants will be a little smaller. What do you think from the new tour? On paper, the path will be more technical and navigation than in previous editions, but it is also true that the bike is more agile and manageable in this type of terrain. Anyway, we will have to verify in situ. You encaras the Edition 2011 with pressure? What are the main challenges of this edition? I have no pressure, simply encaro test with the same strength and determination to always. Keep a good pace at all times, not lower our guard and be very consistent are the mainstays of my philosophy Dakariana we must fly intelligently and manage our experience in the key moments. We must find a balance between the speed and consistency, both necessary to be competitive.
For my part, I have very good feelings. The keys to travel? On paper, the Atacama desert can be a turning point in which we must be very vigilant. I believe that, regardless of how the trial unfolds it will be a very crucial point. We must manage the energy in an intelligent way since the Atacama desert is hard and we must bear in mind that every day wear will not provide us things for nothing. Experience, and know to manage the energy daily, despite the harshness of the rally, will be important to take into account points. There is a great level of pilotage in the Dakar, whereupon, must not make mistakes and be very consistent. A more matched Dakar makes it in a Dakar’s strategy? One of the reasons by which it was decided to apply the new legislation is precisely the balance and match the variables in terms of technique refers. Despite everything, I think that the pilot study and experience continue as main actors of the new Dakar.
