    Beyond the Top 10, the fight will be a close one this Tuesday. Whilst David Casteu (KTM), who started the special at 10.02 AM local time, occupies 10th place ahead of Jordi Viladoms, the two men are separated by no more than 2 minutes… 2 minutes further back, 12th place is occupied by Juan Pedrero Garcia, 8 seconds in front of Olivier Pain. Grouped within a 9 minute bracket, the pursuers up to 20th position are an active threat. Helder Rodrigues, 17th, or Michael Metge in 18th could take advantage of this mountainous special stage.
  • 10:02 Bikes: The bikes start the special

    The bike special started at 9.50 AM local time. Yesterday’s winner, Sam Sunderland kicked off proceedings along the tracks that will take the bike and quad riders to Barreal, where their bivouac this evening is located. Behind Sunderland, the leaders of the general standings, Francisco Lopez and Joan Barreda Bort will be followed by Ruben Faria and Alain Duclos A watchful eye should also be kept on Marc Coma and Cyril Despres in 8th and 9th place, who will be setting off in several minutes.
  • 08:33 : Modification of the day's route

    Due to the severe weather of the last few days, the special section the third stage has been shortened: the bikes and quads will start from the 130 km point on the original route. The start time has also been put back to 9.50 AM local time. The cars and trucks will set off from the originally planned start, but will finish after 222 km instead of the 245 km originally planned.
