Qatar Ep.7: Finish!

Sorry it took me so long but i was really sick! all that air conditioners in Qatar just stroke me. The last 2 race days were pretty intense, loads happened but lets start. Stage 3 i start and ride as always just with the objective to get to the end since i was having some issues but at km 9 of the special stage i didn’t resist…..on the roadbook was marked a big cut dune and as i was approaching it i saw all the photographers and tv so i decided to try and make myself notice since i was unable to race for a top overall result…..i jumped it! ( CLICK HERE FOR VIDEO ) All the photographers got so excited that at the end of the stage they all came up to me and incredibly people that had no idea who i was now wanted to get to know me!!! 😀 Stage 3 was also full of complicated navigation, sometimes the GPS Arrow would point in the opposite direction of where the roadbook and infact many made big mistakes. Stage 4 was the final stage, very fast and quite easy, i just cruised along and managed in the end to win the Junior Class and finish 16th overall in the bikes. My objective which was to win the Junior class was accomplished, now i am 2° in the World Junior Championship and have 17 points from the leader Laskawiec, it will be hard but i will try my best to still win the championship but unfortunately the retirement in Abu Dhabi made me score a heavy 0. Here some photos and the video of Coma, Barreda, Casteau etc and me on the big cut dune:
