During Stage 6 in the dunes our Pilot Sylvain Espinasse came on a top of a dune and saw one of our competitor completely stuck in the sand with the bike sinking in the dune. He stopped with the risk to not be able to restart due to the soft sand and helped the pilot to get ot of trouble and continue the race. Just to give you an idea the risk for a pilot stuck in the sand is to wait there under the sun at 50 degrees for hours before an helicopter come to rescue him.
HONOUR TO OUR PILOTE AND TO THE TACITA SPIRIT !
Thanks to the onboard camera of our Discanto the whole scene has been recorded and now available for you.
