::: FINAL RESULTS :::
Stage 14 is traditionally a joyful celebration of the realization of many dreams, hard work and a lot of suffering. After over 5,500 km the rally draws to a close as the drivers, riders, service teams and members of the race organization congratulate each other on reaching the finish line. However todays stage also served as a reminder that in Africa one must always remain vigilant and a lapse in concentration can have severe consequences. On the way back from the finis to the bivouac one of the big trucks overturned on its side as it was coming down a steep dune. Fortunately the big danish Team Outback truck was quickly on the scene and the boys managed to right up the overturned rig quickly. So tonight everyone is safely back in camp enjoying the big feast and the awards ceremony.
