Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge: "Youngster" Ollie Lloyd climbed 13th pos overall




Well known from many rallies like "Hellas Rally Greece" or "Merzouga Rally", British "youngster" Ollie W. Lloyd from Derbyshire is proud about his participation in the 2014 "UAE Desert Challenge". With his Speedbrain bike, Lloyd is now on 13th position overall, in Tuesday´s third leg he finished in 12th position. Let´s have a review of the past rally-days.

Day 1 (Sunday) saw Ollie W. Lloyd start strong coming 14th on the 290 km stage. "The day had some really fast tracks and lots of dunes but with the unusual rain on the night of technical checks it made the sand very hard, this was great for grip but also brought its dangers as it meant the speeds were much higher," Lloyd reported. In the end he finished on 14th position.

Day 2 (Monday) was a total of 488 km with a 270 km stage made up of mostly sand and dunes, the temperature in the desert is increasing day by day and it was 38 degrees throughout the stage.

"It was really great, I felt fast in the first 40 km overtaking riders and eventually I found my pace matched a few other riders around me," Lloyd said after the stage. "This meant for about 200 km there was a group of 4-5 bikes racing across the dunes, it was amazing to ride with all of them and i think because we were together we went faster through the stage." He finished the day on 13th in the daily rankings and 12th overall.

Tuesday´s SS03 about 376 km with a 256 km timed section was not only long, it was even more hot: The temperatures climbed to 43 degrees. A hard day for everyone, as the sand has lost its moisture they have become much softer and has been catching out a lot of the competitors. Lloyd finished 14th on the stage and is currently lying 13th overall.

"Tuesday was a real test of the bike and my dune riding skills. The dunes are like mountains and you are never off them, it can look completely flat and then when you least expect it there is a 250 m drop near vertical. I started the stage well overtaking two riders however I crashed at km 67 on one of the big drop offs. The bike dug in on the front forcing me over the handle bars and the bike followed me down the dune and landed hard on my leg and back with the rear wheel still going."

So how its going on after the crash? "I have a badly bruised leg and a torn up jersey from the tyre going through it but apart from that I’m ok. The bike is ok too I had to do some minor cosmetic repairs on the stage and the bike is now serviced and ready to start day 4."
