Stage 10 turned out to be a rather lengthy outing comprised of 3 distinct parts: first the last part of yesterday's stage but backwards, followed by some fast and hard piste inviting to opening the throttle wide open and finally an unpredictable band of some of the tallest, softest, most enjoyable dunes of the entire event. Big rooster tails, fierce digging session and high speed jumps over the dune crest were some of the many highlights of the day.
The stage results confirmed the standings so far. First the three Aventura Tuareg riders (Valero, Anguiano, Campdera) followed by the Aussie Ben Cumming. A little further back was the Wings Patrol and the Almeria UTV piloted by Corchero/Sanchez. Not much has changed in the overall standings where the battle to watch is the 3rd contest with the Wings team in the 6 place less than 20 minutes behind Ben Cummings in the 3rd and Juan Campdera sandwiched in 4th. Antonio Valero has a commandable overall lead and should arrive as a winner at Lac Rose. However there is still planty of racing to be had and this event can be highly unpredictable. So stay tuned and let's see what happens during the last Mauritanian stage tomorrow. It should be more high speed fun en route to the capital Nouacchott.
