Río Negro: 5th stage

Fifth stage and fifth victory in a row for the favourites Pinta - Mozzicafredo, who go straight for their eleventh victory, twelveth for each of them as individuals. Yesterday, with the arrival at General Conesa, after a 34 km. course in a terrible fight for the lead, the couple Percaz - Soto where about to make it, but finally paid the effort with a fall down to the fifth place. Pinta and Mozzicafredo stopped the clock in 2h.15'28", followed by Scalesi - Scalesi, Algañaraz - Sericevic and Orellana - di Renzo.

In the overall standings, Pinta Mozzicafredo are comfortably in the lead, but the fight seems to be tough for the second place, which right now is for Percaz - Soto (5'17" behind), followed very closed by Scalesi - Scalesi (5'22") and Orellana - di Renzo (5'47").

In K1 Senior, Daniel Dal-Bo gave another bite to his disadvantage after the rudder break in the third stage and won the stage after a strong paddle. He becomes closer to his rivals for the title in the overall, which is lead by David Ortega and Jonathan Calvo, second.

Today's stage will bring the paddlers down to Monte Bagual.
