Dakar 2017: twelfth stage. Dakar 2017 has just become a matter of history.
We send greetings to all the fans of our team. I'm glad that we managed to curb the nerves and finished the today's stage in calm. The only thing that waits us is the ceremonial ramp in Buenos Aires, after that the last night in the bivouac
Dakar 2017: eleventh stage. What else will we have to overcome?
Today was really tough for me. In yesterday's stage I probably drank too little, I was dehydrated and got a heat stroke. I felt pretty bad since morning, I had a nausea and I struggled with it the entire first section of the split stage.
Dakar 2017: tenth stage. The second long stage.
This year's second long stage is behind us. It wasn't perfect, moreover, it was again divided by neutralization zone, which I don't like, but this time it helped us, because we had to change the wheel in its course.
Dakar 2017: ninth stage. Cancelled stage.
The 9th stage was supposed to be The Royal Stage. But this year's Dakar doesn't belong to the fortunate ones. The capricious weather even divided the participants and their accompaniments. Part of them is yet in Salta while others are on the road across the mountains directly to Chilecito.
Dakar 2017: eighth stage. Goodbye, Bolivia!
Today's shortened stage, the last one in Bolivia, is behind us. To be honest I'm not satisfied with the result, even though we didn't have any technical problems. We didn't have enough power. We just couldn't keep up. The vehicles around were faster.
Dakar 2017: seventh stage. The marathon stage.
After a day off we set out for a stage with shortened speed trial of 161 km. The stage was a combination of a part of the route of the original today's and tomorrow's stage. The special stretch was initially in the dunes, later in sandy terrain.
Dakar 2017: fifth stage. Capricious weather and day off.
The 5th stage was the most nervous for the crew. Our problem with the power steering pump occurred 3 times, and the fact that we got to the finish in good health was due to the force majeure. The bivouac expected us in the finish was completely flooded.
Dakar 2017: fourth stage. Our problem is called 'servo pump'.
Shortly after the start our hopes for a good result in the today's stage dissolved. We had to stop and the finding that the culprit was once again the pump seems almost incomprehensible. But it was a fact.
