Eduard Nikolaev - Stage 9 - ENG

“For us, it was a very interesting stage. There were a lot of rocks and a lot of dust. Every kilometre was very dusty due to all the buggies, motorbikes, cars and trucks. Today, we had a little bit of navigation, but my crew coped with the task perfectly. My co-pilot was the best today and I am happy. We need eight minutes, but we have three days and I will go fast, fast, fast. I will try… I will try”.
