Mattias Esktröm: Very eventful day for us. Early on in the stage we got lost and that cost us quite a lot of time. We kept a good pace after that, despite suffering a puncture around midway. In the last section of the stage we had a technical problem and were able to use only rear wheel drive.

Camelia Liparoti: « Today was supposed to be our day, but we got totally lost. On top of that, we had a flat tyre. That cost us a lot of time. Otherwise, the stage was very nice and we were able to make up some time in the dunes. »
