Monster Energy Honda Team rider Joan Barreda has secured his fourth victory in the Baja Aragon 2017.

The Honda rider claimed a winning result over Sherco’s Joan Pedrero with Barreda’s teammate Michael Metge completing the top three.

“It is not easy to win the Baja Aragon and I am very happy to have won four times here,” told Barreda. 

Held over two stages, Barreda proved the rider to beat by winning both stages on his Honda. 

Rolling into the end of stage two with an overall winning margin of over six minutes, Barreda claimed his fourth win in the Spanish Baja rally, in what was the 34th edition of the race.

“Although I have had some minor mishaps, I feel satisfied to have been able to overcome the circumstances when things weren’t going right. 

“I put in a good performance and so I'm happy about it. We were looking for pace in this rally and I think we showed greater rhythm than the rest of the participants. Throughout the weekend we have attacked and it went well.”
