Newsletter and video (with English part) from Instaforex Loprais Team...

Today's stage from Antofagasta to Iquique along the Pacific coast was black for our crew. The whole stage we did at a quite optimal pace. “Everything went well, and then came the dunes. Unfortunately because under inflation one the tires we lost rubber from the wheel, followed by a puncture and we stopped sat on the belly,” said Aleš after the stage.

Truck was stacked in the sand and it looked for a long time, but we were lucky and our teammate Marcel Van Vliet helped us, and we have to say many thanks for his help. By decision of race stewards was Marcel have got 17 min minus from his overall time for emergency assistance, for that we are very happy.

The seventh stage from Iquique leading to marathon bivouac without assistance teams and mechanics. First we have to pass 101 km long connection stage followed by special stage measure 335 km. First truck should start at 11.35 local time. We thank you that you continue to believe and support us in our fight.
