Loprais Comments on stage 5:

Fifth stage – Is it yesterday or today?
It can´t be true! Today´s initial phase of the stage was almost identical to the yesterday´s one from our point of view. Shortly after the start of the speed trial we encountered the same problem. The power steering pump again! With the only difference that it is raining today. Another loss of 27 minutes.
What do we feel? Futility and frustration … In addition, further progress of the stage was not smooth either and our loss has even increased… Due to the poor conditions during our telephone call the explanation will be provided probably only in the video. We do not know if the results will have to be modified, because half of the trucks did not pass through WP3 and it is not yet clear what the organizer will do with that.
What should we expect tomorrow? Stage 6 from ORURO to LA PAZ at a total length of 772 km, of which 513 km measured. Whether we will drive the whole length will depend on the weather, which is very unpredictable here. Perhaps we won´t even relish the beauty of Lake Titicaca and we will be happy to arrive in time to LA PAZ, a small town at an altitude of 4000 meters above the sea level

Martin Kolomy:
Bad luck in the shortened fifth stage also Martin Kolomý: wandered and had two punctured tires. While still in the middle of measured section headed.
“The first half of the stage we had, but in the second part we had navigation problems, when it was badly written from the organizers. At the end I had crossed the edge of the dunes, for which they have been around some rocks, and I tore my two rubbers. There we again lost but this is racing and it’s all the same. We have no choice nothing but put up with it and keep fighting, “said the drenched bivouac Bruntálský pilot.
Stage 6  cancelled
This morning, some competitors were still making their way through the special. Extreme weather conditions were preventing competitors and their vehicles from reaching the bivouac and preparing for today’s Stage 6 properly. Furthermore, the scouts sent by the organisers to reconnoitre today’s stage and reported that the terrain is steadily deteriorating. As a result, stage 6 from Oruro to La Paz has been cancelled.
