The withdrawal rate was very high this year. Everybody had lots of technical mishaps, many so bad that the vehicle broke down beyond repair, or even burnt to ashes. Bodily injuries were not too severe, except one rider and 2 journalists who died – that is always a tragedy.
This rally was worse than “normal”, usually about 50% finish the rally.
Congratulations to all who made it all the way!
Back home from Rally Albania! At last we know how we did – the results are published.
I was 31st, Lelle & Henrik within 50, David & Tony further back because they both missed out one stage. I was doing a perfect race until stage 6, then loosing time and many places when I made a nav error and my clutch stopped working completely.
Well, I had a fantastic time, made many new rally friends – especially “super-fast-quad girl” Zornica Todorova from Bulgaria!
