Hero MotoSPorts Starts their Silkway campaign on a positive note

- Paulo Goncalves and Oriol Mena in top 10 at the end of Stage 1

The Silkway Rally started on a positive note for Hero MotoSports Team Rally with both riders bringing the stage home in good time. Paulo Goncalves, in his debut run with Hero MotoSports, showed glimpses of why he is considered one of the best in the business by finishing the stage 1 in 6th position. Oriol wasn't far behind as he too closed the first stage in the 10th position.

 

It was a short stage today, starting with stony terrain which later turned into forest roads, river beds and dusty Siberian hills. The tracks got tricky due to the slippery nature of the terrain resulting from the overnight rains. Both riders took on the first stage with caution, avoiding unnecessary risks to bring the bikes home.

Stage 1 today, took the competitors from Irkutsk and put them to the test on first special stage of 51kms of technical tracks alongside the shores of LAKE BAÏKAL to reach the first rally bivouac at Baykalsk. The total stage distance covered was 255 km including the two liaison stage making up the 201 kms.

Stage 2 tomorrow will give the first taste of the rally to the competitors with a long day of riding covering 413 kms from Baykalsk to the Ulan Ude bivouac.

Paulo Goncalves (Comp #4): "I got a good feeling out there today and am really happy to finish the first stage with my Hero 450 RR. It was a short stage with just about 51 kms to be done on the clock, but it was a bit tricky as the ground was slippery due to overnight rains. So I drove fast enough to avoid unnecessary risks and happy to see the back of the first stage through. Looking forward to the next one."

Oriol Mena (Comp #25): "Happy to finish the first stage of the rally. I rode well today, with a good feeling on the bike. The piste was full muddy and slushy with water holes and some stones as well. It's just the start of the rally so I did not want to take any risks. I am happy for myself and Paulo that we made a good start for the team today."
