Dmitry Sotnikov: It was a nervous affair


The overall leader padded his lead with his third stage win. He now leads second-placed Martin Macík by 26 minutes.

“It wasn’t that easy. First there were dunes and then fields of rocks where we suffered a flat tyre. The second part was a nervous affair because we had another two punctures, but it really wasn’t fun. Then came an easier, faster section, followed by a part with trickier navigation, but our co-driver did a great job. We saw Viazovich after he stopped before the first neutralised sector, he probably had a mechanical, but I don’t think it was a flat tyre.”
