Stage 6 | Zagora - Merzouga
Getting close to Top 10!
Nicolas: ”Pain in the hands….wonderful dunes.”
From the very beginning we were immersed in wonderful sets. But the problems with my hands have not disappeared. I can’t close my hands completely anymore and they get stuck in the race for the first fifty kilometers. It really doesn’t help.
To return to the race, many kilometers in wadis with very soft sand at the beginning. In this regard, you must imagine that managing a bike even in a straight line is a certain effort in the soft sand. The motorcycle wriggles with force. You have to find the position to lift the front.
Finally this is the second part that everyone was waiting for. Four cords of dunes to pass and this in conditions far from optimal. With the sun at the dunes peak it becomes very difficult to distinguish the reliefs. At this point, everyone was able to understand me. Imagine the feeling of no longer touching the ground with its wheels in total surprise. The worst thing is that you can’t even estimate the moment when you wish to land. Otherwise I am almost satisfied with my driving in the dunes.
The navigation part was not perfect but I could correct my mistakes quickly. Which gives at the end of the day a correct day.
The goals of stage 7 is: Perfect navigation in case of the roadbook and find the best feeling with his bike.
