After having made a navigation mistake, the crew of Loeb and Lurquin have finally reached the rest day in 3rd position in the general rankings, more than 50 minutes behind Nasser Al-Attiyah.

“It was a complicated day. We got lost after 100 km, or something like this. We lost quite a lot of time and after that we tried to push to try to close the gap again with the guys in front. I think the rhythm was good, but we lost too much time there, so now the gap, given that we’ve lost fifteen minutes to Nasser again, is fifty-five minutes. It’s quite a lot, nearly one hour, I think. But we’ll see – there’s still a long way to go. So, we’ll continue to push, to try and do some good stages and we’ll see. I have no goal – I will try to do my best and the result will be what it is”.
