Yamaha On Cusp For Podium Following Penultimate Stage At Morocco Rally



Wrapping up the penultimate stage at this year’s OiLibya Morocco Rally in fourth position, Hélder Rodrigues moved up to fourth in the provisional overall standings. With the race entering its fifth and final stage tomorrow, the Yamalube Yamaha Official Rally Team rider is now less than two minutes behind a provisional top three overall result. Stage four of the OiLibya Morocco Rally 2016 proved to be challenging for all competitors. Successfully battling his way through the day’s mixed stony, dusty and sandy conditions Hélder Rodrigues managed to bring Yamaha one-step closer to the overall podium.

The Portuguese rider set a good pace aboard his WR450F Rally machine right off the start and in avoiding any mistakes he reached the finish line fourth. For Yamalube Yamaha Official Rally Team’s Adrien Van Beveren it was another learning stage ahead of the Frenchman’s second participation at the prestigious Dakar. Battling with other riders’ dust Adrien came home in eighth, managing to retain his seventh place in the rally’s provisional overall standings. Back to the race after experiencing a dramatic couple of days, Alessandro Botturi found a good rhythm and went on to finish the day 12th.

The Italian rider had suffered a broken sprocket on stage two and was forced to sit out the second part of the marathon stage yesterday. Looking forward to getting some well-earned rest tonight Alessandro is confident he can wrap up the rally with a good final stage result tomorrow. Continuing his strong run of form, Rodney Faggoter finished the penultimate stage of the rally 13th and is still 11th in the provisional overall standings. As for Yamaha supported Xavier de Soultrait, the Frenchman put in another impressive performance aboard his WR450F machine. Finishing today’s stage fifth, Xavier is currently fifth in the overall standings.
