In racing action, Barreda leads the stage at Wp9, but Despres has made enough time to be the leader of the rally, on the road.

Ayant chuté après avoir percuté une vache sur la piste au km 120, David été blessé à l’épaule.

“J’ai les ligaments reliant la clavicule et l’omoplate arrachés. Donc cela devient très difficile pour moi de continuer à mi-parcours. Je suis très déçu pour mes partenaires et pour toutes les personnes qui sont derrière moi” explique David qui occupait la 1re place du classement général avant cet accident.
“Je reste sur place pour assurer mon rôle de manager dans le team en soutenant Romain Souvignet” conclut David.
Solidaire, Romain Souvignet a assisté David durant son malheur, c’est la raison pour laquelle le second pilote du team Casteu a perdu autant de places.

"I have the ligaments connecting the clavicle and scapula torn. So it becomes very difficult for me to continue to mid-term. I am very disappointed for my partner and all the people behind me, "says David who was the 1st place overall before the accident.
"I remain on site to ensure my role as team manager in supporting Souvignet Roman" concludes David.
