Joan Barreda receives 45 minutes of penalty for missing three WP. He’s now 13th overall.
Adrien Van Beveren (Monster Energy Yamaha) 4th at 05:46 and 5th overall 17:33 “I’m not necessarily the fastest, except maybe in the dunes, so I count on being consistent. Yesterday that saw me finish 12th. Today I didn’t do anything differently and I finished 4th. I tend to really slow down when the navigation is tricky. Sometimes it pays off like today where you had to come out of the rio.”
Andrew Short (Monster Energy Yamaha) 3rd at 05:24 and 10th overall at 32:06 “I felt like I rode a lot better today and I navigated well and quickly. There was one particularly tricky point where I caught a bunch of people.”
