X-raid problems: last year Jakub Przygoński, this year Vaidotas Zala


X-raid problems lasts. One of the the first stage’s leader Vaidotas Zala stopped because of transmission problems. It looks like that it’s the same story like in Dakar 2020 for the Polish Jakub Przygoński.

“There is a reason why Dakar rally is widely known as the toughest rally in the world. Todays special stage was the shortest from the whole rally but that did not mean no trouble. We encountered transmission problems on km 146. While waiting for the service truck, Timo and I started removing the transmission in order to speed up fixing time for the service crew. After 5h 40min we have returned to race the rally”, last year after the first stage said Jakub Przygoński.
