S7. Poisoned by food!

Posted on Updated on

Stage 7 became a night mare. Annie used her last powers to ride to the bivouaq. She had high fever and her stomache felt really bad. She has now a medical dropper and gets antibiotics for the food poisoning.  The doctors will decide in the morning if she can go on with the race.

Many other participants also got food poisoned, all from the dakar catering. How is this kind of safety?

Another problem this day was that the clutch broke already in the beginnig of the stage. Riding in the difficult terrain without a clutch made the strain even worse. No wonder she lost much time.  She finished the stage as number 90, last lady this time. Tina Meier followed Annie on the connection to the bivouac where she went to the doctor.

One good thing was that this stage’s specials were shortened by a half. There were two of them planned, in total some 600 km, but only one part of 273 km was run. This because many contestants had arrived very late from the 6th stage before rest day that they there was not much time for rest at all.

    It shouldn’t be easy in Dakar, but this test was unexpected i guess. Get well and get into the top 20. I know you can do it.
