Barreda overcomes: his clavicle comes out and drives with one hand

Imagine having to face seven stages of a Dakar with a broken collarbone on a motorcycle. Impossible right? Well that’s what he’s holding Joan Barreda since he injured his left shoulder, as well as other blows to that side, since he fell in the fifth stage. But the thing is not there, because the history of overcoming the Castellón could still go one step further … In the eighth stage, he flew into a dune, the motorcycle fell on him, his collarbone came out again and he had to ride one-handed!

And that’s how the Honda one said after the stage, as if nothing had happened: “A difficult stage, the first part had a lot of sand and I had a fall there. When jumping off a dune it got stuck in me, I came out ahead and I the motorcycle has fallen on top. In the fall I noticed that it was coming out again (The clavicle) and for a few minutes it hurt a lot, I had to drive with one hand, but with the passage of the kilometers he has been improving. “After another intense session of physiotherapy, he hopes to be able to go out” quite well “tomorrow.

“You have to fight every day, give your best. Going with a slightly more advanced position and the softer suspension in the dunes suffered a lot,” explains Barreda, who justifies the risk of having another fall like this because “The pace ahead is very high and to follow it you have to grit your teeth.” And the best of all is that this incident was not what made him lose time in the end, but a navigation failure: “I was with Cornejo, we had an error with a note and it has conditioned us a lot, a pity. top off”.
