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. Although the emotions of some teams escalated in today's short stage, needless to say that it was unnecessary. The only thing that waits us is the ceremonial ramp in Buenos Aires, after that the last night in the bivouac and on Sunday packaging and transport of the equipment to the port. The mission will be concluded by a little tiring plane trip home to which we're incredibly looking forward to.
Considering that what we encountered at this year's rally in the form of technical problems, we're extremely satisfied with the result. Having advanced from 14th place to 7th place overall is a beautiful satisfaction for us.
I would like to thank all the fans for their support, for a lot of SMS messages, emails and various comments. We read everything but didn't manage to respond to all. We'll try to fix it. Thanks also to the family and my main partners, which include InstaForex, Budweiser Budvar, Go4Games, Chladek and Tintera, Interflon as well as the entire Tatra Buggyra team for the opportunity to participate in this incredible adventure!
Watch on our site, we will keep you updated with the upcoming events and future plans of our team.
Thank you very much for the last time from this year's Dakar in Buenos Aires, Ales Loprais.
