Today's shortened stage, the last one in Bolivia, is behind us. To be honest I'm not satisfied with the result, even though we didn't have any technical problems. We didn't have enough power. We just couldn't keep up. The vehicles around were faster.
After a day off we set out for a stage with shortened speed trial of 161 km. The stage was a combination of a part of the route of the original today's and tomorrow's stage. The special stretch was initially in the dunes, later in sandy terrain.
The 5th stage was the most nervous for the crew. Our problem with the power steering pump occurred 3 times, and the fact that we got to the finish in good health was due to the force majeure. The bivouac expected us in the finish was completely flooded.
Shortly after the start our hopes for a good result in the today's stage dissolved. We had to stop and the finding that the culprit was once again the pump seems almost incomprehensible. But it was a fact.
The third stage is over. Nothing pleasant. We started from the 12th position, so we could expect a lot of dust and overtaking. We were quite successful in the first part of the measured section and we finished in 4th position.
I'm glad today's stage is already behind us. It was an agony. Crazy heat, almost 50 C outsides and 80 C in the cabin. I'm still fighting with illness, so I turn up the heating a little bit. So unpleasant! However, the heat is with all of us.
We have finished the first tough stage of the Dakar Rally. The speed trial measured only 39 km, but it was very narrow and broken. Moreover, the weather was incredibly hot, the truck was like a sauna.
We are already counting down the seconds till the beginning of the Dakar Rally 2017. The weather is changing all the time. A few rainy days in 37 C heat caused lots of insects, such as mosquitoes and ants.
