|Abu Dhabi DC BLOG: Italy´s Manuel Lucchese in Abu Dhabi´s Desert (part 2).|
From Manuel Lucchese: "Tuesday was again a hard day, I didin´t felt so good this morning but started the second Super Special trying to push... but saw that I just couldn’t get the pace.
The stage was really hard - but beautiful with all dunes and many giant ones... really fun to ride eventhough very tyring!
Just tried to find a constant pace, a bit too slow but my objective for this year is concentrated on my class and will attain to my plan.
This year the race feels a bit harder than last year especially due to very soft sand and many holes, almost half of the riders are already out after only 2 stages so this says it all.
Wednesday will be probably the hardest stage of the rally with 345 kms of special stage with many big big dunes. Sorry for updating so late and not much but I wasn’t feeling too good so was unable to do much..."
