BP Ultimate Vodafone Team driver overcomes the first half of the Dakar

After seven intense days of race Miguel Barbosa will have tomorrow, in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia, a well deserved rest day. Today the BP Ultimate Vodafone Team driver, navigated by Pedro Velosa and driving a Toyota Hilux T1 Overdrive had to face 348 km disputed to the chronometer overcome without major incidents.

"It was a fast stage, with many, many stones. We found dunes nearer the end. The dunes were the most interesting part of the course. Everything else had a lot of rock. We had two punctures. You have to walk with 'woolly feet', but it is still easy to get holes. We also stopped to help the Chinese rider in our team who had rolled over. We gave him a tug with our belt, which is also part of the Dakar, this spirit of helping each other. We are already in the middle of the race, and we are happy to be here. The car is okay and we haven't had any problems. Now it's time to reset the car and see what we can improve for the second week", said the BP Ultimate Vodafone Team driver upon arrival in Riyadh, capital of Saudi Arabia at the end of the sixth stage.

Tomorrow the pilots will be able to enjoy a rest day. This is the time for everyone to take stock of their strategy and use the time wisely to recover in a balanced way. The time will be divided between the necessary maintenance of the machines to return to the dunes and rest in the true sense of the word. All this while keeping the focus on the competition.
