|Balkan-Breslau TICKER: The participants finished day 3 around Starosel.|
First participants finished the Monday´s stage! Actually at 16:00 CET and 17:00 local time the fastest participants finished the today´s stage, a roundcourse splitted in three single stages around the village of Starosel and the city of Plovdiv with 400 kms to solve.
Dust, stones, forest - and again dust: The today´s stage had it all. The day started early at 08:30 local time in a wide open area, which was very dry and extremely dusty. Then the participants had to climb the stony forest mountains near the city of Plovdiv, here the CROSS COUNTRY and EXTREME group were splitted in different routes. On a mountain platform the organisation installed a service park were the participants could relax or fix damages, after that they went back in direction Starosel, again inside the dusty wide open area.
Team Heyman/Raz from Israel today showed an incredible driving style - they pushed their Mitsubishi Proto with high-speed even through the tougher off-road sections and had a great fight with the Bulgarian Opel Antara crew Cenkov / Marinov and the Dutch Ubachs / Van Weersch (Toyota).
Funny story today: The other Israelian car of Shacham / Nimrod was totally lost for the organisation and the can´t find them even on the road...then the orga got a call: "Look at Facebook"... The crew went out to repair the car and posted this at Facebook whilst the organisation searched them...
Dutch Henno van Bergeijk showed his pace with his Husaberg bike today and finished overall first.
