One man army Bou

10 de May de 2022

Almost individual blocks crossing stretches of absolute immensity. The navigation strategies that divide the peloton into small groups. Sometimes we think that the ŠKODA Titan Desert Morocco is a sport of individual effort, but the team plays a decisive factor. And where this is most noticeable is in the marathon stage.

The rookie Francisco Herrero has learned it well today. A mechanical problem caused him to leave the dune zone as the last of the elite group. The Segovian gritted his teeth and continued to push himself. He did not do it alone, he had a guardian angel named Roberto Bou. The Teruel-born rider helped his teammate to link up with the head of the race and did not leave it there.

Bou attacked in the last kilometers with Sergio Mantecón and Guillem Martínez. The Cannondale TB rider dared to sail in the final stretch and was the best of the leading group. He completed a day for history with a solo victory, after doing a priceless job for his team.

Herrero was also able to extend his lead over Looser. Both riders reached a tight sprint, but the Swiss rider measured the final curve worse and lost three seconds at the finish line.

Ramirez, with iron fist

In the women’s GC, Anna Ramirez does not want to leave any loose ends in her tyrannical domination. The Catalan rider took the lead right from the first stretch of dunes and continued to push to extend her advantage

The margin over her pursuers was more than four minutes. Vera Looser was again the one who could best resist the strength of the KH7 rider. The Namibian cyclist does not want to give up in this ŠKODA Titan Desert Morocco. If yesterday she managed to snatch the victory from Ramirez, today she was the smartest in the final stretch of navigation and managed to reduce the gap to the head of the race

The leader is more leader, but Looser managed to reduce the gap to 30 seconds. In any case, Ramirez has a margin of more than five minutes over her rivals and has shown no signs of weakness so far in the race.
