Team HRC’s Spanish rider Joan Barreda proved to be the quickest today in the Super Special as the Baja Aragón got underway on the outskirts of Teruel.

The rider, aboard the Honda CRF450 E, threw down the gauntlet in the short nine-kilometre special with a two-and-a-half second margin over the runner-up.

Frenchman Michael Metge, competing on the Honda CRF450 RALLY, took fourth place some ten seconds adrift of teammate Barreda.

Tomorrow sees the SS2, which will be divided into two special stages against the clock over some 170 kilometres.
