Romain Dumas, who has shown impeccable, impressive consistency since the start of Marine Camp on December 31st, broke out of the top 20 of the stage for the first time. the second ends the day on the 26the position with navigator Max Delfino. A small bump that took Alésien out of the top 5 less than 24 hours after integration thanks to a good 5e 9 placee special. Rebellion Racing’s tandem is still in the game, at a respectable 6the Place in the general classification in the “Automatic” category.
