Eat contested the Rally of Sardinia, who finished a creditable sixth place, in order to prepare for participation in the Baja Aragon. And that preparation, with the great time going through the young pilot would prove essential, since for the first time in his career was proclaimed winner of this prestigious event. But not all would be happiness. When he was second in the Rally of Egypt, the death of Richard Sainct made all KTM riders leave the proof to honor him.
