JORDI VILADOMS
"I'm glad I managed to win in a new race like this. It is certainly important to have a championship of Spain in which you must use a road book, as these are a great preparation for the Dakar, and that if we wanted something like this, we had to go racing in Italy. in the prologue I was fourth and that allowed me to make no mistakes in navigation in the 48 km special. These races with Gas Gas are making me improve and become familiar with everything, the bike and the team to get in good shape for Dakar".

GERARD FARRÉS
"After all the injuries and running with the new bike, I did not expect this result and the open terrain still made ​​it more difficult. This race has given me confidence to continue to prepare for Dakar. The thing that stands out is the commitment to the bike, in that I felt comfortable and it encouraged me even more to keep working hard for our Dakar project".
