504 - ALES LOPRAIS

Like harmony!

I have to say I'm satisfied because yesterday it was really hell for us. I have to thank the machine because when she's listening to me and there is no technical trouble it's like harmony, you know, it's like a concert and we enjoy it. We are really focused on the rest of the stages and we hope we will continue like this.

501 - GERARD DE ROOY

He must have put some pepper in his ass!

It was very tough. When we had to stop behind all the cars we were on the small bumps and it kills you. You get shaken; your heart, your kidneys... we felt everything. We drove a good race. We played it safe and didn't have any punctures. Suddenly Nikolaev passed us very quickly, so he must have put some pepper in his ass, and I couldn't keep up with him. But 15 km later he broke down with two front wheels completely broken, so he ran out of good luck. We drove the same race and we're happy with the result. There's a long way yet, but it was good.

Afterwards, my navigator had a big bang in his chest. He shouted, so I slowed down on the last part, because he has to see a doctor. It was a very nice Dakar stage. I want to congratulate the organisation for the stages so far, also for the new sentinel, it works perfectly. It's much safer than before, because I passed Van Vliet and I activated the sentinel. He signalled back to me and heard me, so it's much safer than before.
