Really bad day…. blew up the race for the overall podium. The day had started well in the first 230km stage i was going fast and was keeping my 6th position until km 190 when i had a bad crash into a fence line and got all tied up in the fence. While i was trying to take off all the wire around the bike i was lucky that Todd Smith stopped and helped me out so i managed to lose only about 15 minutes and end the special. For stage 2 we had changed the wheel and instead of mounting a wheel with a mousse another wheel with a tube was put on…..30km into stage 2 (260km) i got a front flat tyre and from then onwards it was hell! Really difficult to ride in those condition and constantly hoping the tyre wouldn’t come out. In the bad luck i had the fortune it kept and managed to get to the end. I lost 1 hour and now i find myself really far back in 16th position with over 30 minutes to catch up on the other riders if i want to get in the top 10 and over 1 hour to get in the top 5. Anyway as always i will keep on trying and hopefully we will manage to catch up some positions by the end of the rally.
