Rodney Faggotter has moved into 16th overall after another impressive stage of the Dakar Rally. With one round still remaining the entire Yamalube Yamaha Official Rally Team are behind Rod as he charges towards his goal of a top-15 position overall.
“It’s been a very long day with more than 14 hours on the bike. There were two separate timed specials with a long ride section in between. I started quite steady in the first part. There were some sections with deep sand and just tried to remain fast without making mistakes. Then the second timed special was pretty fast. We were going 150km/h so we all had to stay focused on the road ahead and keep it on two wheels. Overall, it’s been a good day for me and I’ve managed to move up a couple of spots in the overall. I’m 16th overall now and I’m looking forward to bringing it home tomorrow.”
