VILA OF THE DESERT

Pep Vila and Moi Torrellardona know now what it feels to be in the desert at night. During yesterday's stage, from Zouerat to Atar, the ventilator of the Iveco Trakker broke at the 170th km. Without the spare part, Torrellardona found a passage to the closest village: while Vila slept in his truck in the middle of nowhere, Torrellardona came back this morning at 9.

After the broken part was replaced, the two went on the track again, reaching Atar in the afternoon and then leaving again for Nouakchott, where they are supposed to arrive tomorrow.

"We have been unlucky, but I am not giving up: I wanna reach Dakar" says Vila.
