Relive #Dakar2002 with Annie Seel
STAGE 3: NARBONNE-MADRID
Sunday 30/12 2001
Thanks heaven – a rain break. In total a 930 km stage, but the special today was a short 40 km loop on whirly gravel roads up and down the hills of southern France. I was warned it would be very slippery, so I took it easy. Maybe a little too easy since I came just 127th. Better safe than sorry, most important was not do any mistake and give away time as yesterday.
Moto Aventures met up at the special and drove the bike on trailer to Madrid, nice since it rained heavily again. Arrived at midnight. Met the Swedish car team Rosenblad/Roos for the first time, it’s also their first Dakar.
Special : 35 km
Liaison : 870 km
Total : 930 km
