Commenting on his performance
Joan Pedrero said, "I am very happy to be back on track in Bolivian
territory. I feel good and for me, the race starts now. I am going to attack as
much as possible and make up some places. It was very difficult in Peru, but
now we have returned to Bolivia and I will be able to give it my best!”
Meanwhile, Aravind KP, who had
to retire at the end of the fifth stage due to an injury is stable and
undergoing medical treatment. “Post
yesterday’s crash, I am feeling better now after getting medical
attention. I would like to thank all my
fans and well-wishers for their love and support all through Dakar. The doctors
in Lima have informed me that I will require surgery once back in India. So, I am focused on staying positive and
recovering quickly so that I can get back on the bike quickly,” he said.
