Dmitry Sotnikov: We tried to reach our ideal pace


More than ever, Dmitry Sotnikov appears to be a candidate for overall triumph. The Kamaz driver enjoyed a second victory between Bisha and Wadi Ad-Dawasir by beating Mardeev and Viazovich to consolidate his lead in the general standings.

“It was a rather long stage, but the second part was really fast. The beginning part was complicated because there were the first dunes. We needed just a few of them to feel more comfortable, and after that we tried to reach our ideal pace. The navigation was complicated, but we tried to pay attention for the right directions and check the roads for any traps, but our tactics were good for today and we are happy to finish”.
