Dakar 2006 - Leg 13
Problems today for Benoît Rousselot, who has still not reached the Tambacounda bivouac in Senegal. Having lost a wheel seven kilometres from the end of the timed sector, the Nissan Pathfinder crew are currently trying to repair their vehicle.
days, different stories for Benoît Rousselot. Yesterday, between Bamako and Labé, the Nancy-based driver had put in a very good stage despite a few problems with the shock absorbers. Unfortunately, today, between Labé and Tambacounda in Senegal, seven kilometres from the finish, Benôit tore off a wheel….Along with his co-driver Sylvain Poncet, he is currently trying to repair it.
The T4 truck should soon arrive to help them finish their repairs. They will then face over 200 kilometres of liaison in order to reach the bivouac.
We hope that Benoît will arrive in the next few hours, and will be able to take the start of the penultimate stage between Tambacounda and Dakar.
