That’s it. I knew it could be a very good result when I realized that nobody had went to Ireland as well. Apart from the problems at the Eurotunnel and the „breakdown“ just before the finish, the ride went very smooth. I think it was an excellent training for the „big dance“ next year, the mother of all LD rallies, the Ironbutt Rally in the US. I think I found the right balance between riding and resting, I never was really tired and always felt I was under control (after from the panicking moments mentioned above).
So the ceremony came….
3rd place Dave Winter
2nd place Daniel Duvskog
1st place Robert Koeber
A very nice result and congratulations to Daniel and Dave!
