Nani Roma remains fifth overall after stage seven, a marathon of 284 km of link and 453 of special, won by Al Rajhi, in which the Bahrain Raid Xtreme rider has qualified tenth.
“We have tried to drive the best we could. At the beginning, consumption skyrocketed and I decided to slow down a bit because I was not sure what the special was like, if it was all the same as the start and we would be low on gas. Then we have seen that no, that the tracks have been harder, with stones, and we have been able to finish well ”, says Nani at the end of the stage.
Nani is satisfied with the day: “It was another positive day and the car is complete. There is nothing to repair, although we have to look at a series of lists to verify. “
The one from Folgueroles says he is happy with how things are going: “We are learning from everything, from Alex and from the car. Therefore, the balance is positive ”.
Problems again for his teammate Sebastien Loeb who gave up 1h50’40 after the breakage of one of his hubs.
