Spain, however, did not have a perfect day since Lorenzo Santolino dropped out. Jonathan Barragan said, “It was a tough day, even hader than the first two days. It was really hot and it was hard for the bike. Lots of riders dropped out. We lost one and Australia lost a rider too. Now we will see who makes it through the end. Our strategy is to hold on”.
Germany is on the fourth place with a time of 13h04m04s21/100. Argentina is on the fifth place after Stefano Caimi dropped out due to a mechanical problem by the end of the day. Anyway, the national team keeps its hope with a time of 49m22s27/100.“It was rather tough. The weather was very hot and it was hard for the bikes. In the stage 5, I fell and my foot got stuck between the tire and the exhausted pipe. Luckily, we could finish the day. Lots of riders dropped out today .My shin hurts a lot, I will race tomorrow, no matter what.” Kevin Benavides said after getting off of his bike in the Park Ferme.
Australia was really affected today. Two riders ,Joshua Green and Jarrod Bewley, dropped out from Kangaroos’ team who were on the second place yesterday and now the team is done from the general classification since the team does not have five riders as required. .
Tomorrow, day 4 of the competence, the race will take place on the same stage.
