Riwald Team press release
Wevers 7th on the fourth day!
So, what a day today. Began quietly, the route turned out to be the same reasonable in terms of surface. Our drivers got some self-confidence and so they started with a nice feeling.
Bernhard drove a super quick time: 5th during the latest WP, until he slided on his side in a helical curve. That’s something you can’t really use if you are on such a beautiful position. Gert and Eugenié put Bernhard and Matthieu again in the upright position so that they could sue their way.
This lost Gert and Eugenié ofcourse precious minutes and they finished 15th. Bernhard still ended 19th.
But then: Erik Wavers: steady as he goes! What a solid power within the team: no damages, drives a tight Dakar so far and we see him therefore steady on the 7th spot in the ranking and 10th in the General ranking.
Tomorrow the caravan will pass the San Fransisco Pas, to Fiambala, a liaison of 246 kilometers and a stage of 177 kilometers.
For now: let me remind you that the mechanics will experience a heavy night tonight! Strenght to you guys!
