Following a ten hour wait at the Russian border on Friday, teams finally made their way in to Mongolia. During the 43.5 mile transit section to the camp at Oelgy, several teams had to stop to change tires. Even though it was a transit, the road was so rocky that tire punctures were commonplace. Yesterday was a well needed day of rest and the competitive stages continue today.
The Canadian boys, Kees Nierop and Lawrence Yap will begin the day in 16th place in their Porsche Cayenne. Thanks to youtuber David Martinez, we have nicely edited footage of the early stages of this year’s event already. Watch for Kees and Lawrence in the silver #20 Cayenne, as Kees attempts a gutsy pass in a water hole.
