The Honda CRF450 RALLY was once again the protagonist in the fourth stage of the Andalucia Rally: the victory went to Joan Barreda and second place to Kevin Benavides, who in doing so, consolidates the overall leadership.
The third stage of this Andalucia Rally was the lengthiest of the four days of competition: 300 kilometers against the clock out of a total 434-kilometre stage, held entirely in the province of Seville.

Hero MotoSports Team Rally continued its steady run at the Andalucia Rally today with all three riders successfully completing the third stage.
Joaquim Rodrigues, who faced a technical snag in stage 2, came back strongly today and clocked an impressive time to finish the stage at 18th place.
CS Santosh continued to ride with confidence and finished the stage at 20th place.
Sebastian Buhler regained the momentum to finish the stage at 24th place.

- There are still plenty riders out so this is just a temporary situation but it gives you an idea who is where and how the perform.
looks like Andrew Short had a "golden hand" switching to Yamaha as he's right with the front guys.

Hero MotoSports Team Rally kick started their first campaign of the season at the Andalucia Rally today. After having cleared all the administrative and technical checks over the last 2 days, the team took to the starting line of the Prologue stage at the Villamartin city of Spain.
The first full stage of the rally will be covering 59 kms in the liaison to reach the start line near the town of Moron De La Frontera followed by a 258 km timed special

After many months of enforced inactivity, the bike and quad competitors finally got the chance to turn a wheel in anger over a 9 kilometer super special to decide the start order
The bike team with the biggest change of personnel is undoubtedly the Monster Energy Yamaha Rally Team with the winner of the last Rallye du Maroc, Andrew Short moving over to the French based team. He has been joined by another recent promising arrival on the rally scene, Ross Branch.
