“We finished the last stage at day 1 at the same time as New Zeeland teams Adventure Sport NZ & Team Seagate.
The first stage started with a pursuit start with 1 minute between teams, we had start number 5 and Seagate and Adventure Sport NZ had start number 1 and 3 which means that we started 5 respectively 2 minutes behind.
The finnish team did good behind us.
We hope that we can push hard on the long desert running (35km) tomorrow.”
