“Again it was like a real Dakar stage. The dunes were not easy at the beginning. The sand was quite easy, but it was not easy to read the dunes, but I think we managed to get a good speed on that part. After that, at some point, we got lost. We caught up with Seb. We lost some minutes and I got upset when we got a puncture. We had to change it and that made me even more upset. But finally, after a few minutes we found a way out to get back on track and then pushed to the end. But what is lost is lost and that’s too bad”.
