The rider Alberto Martínez (9/26/1977) has lost his life today due to a traffic accident at kilometer 2.93 of the stage. Specifically, the outcome has taken place on the A-92 highway. It was a liaison section (non-competitive) before the arrival of the competitive specials.

Alberto Martínez, better known as “Albertito Carpediem” by all friends and motor enthusiasts, was a charismatic Basque rider and loved by the rest of the rally scene. His loss leaves a great void.
