Üle 2 aasta ei ole me tuuriga Lätti saanud selle kuradi viiruse tõttu, aga täna sai topelt, tegelikult isegi tripelt! Sest rada käis oma 72 kilomeetri ja 1049 tõusumeetriga lausa 3 korda kuuevarbaliste juures ja tuli 3 korda viievarbaliste juurde tagasi!
Aga see selleks, Taavi Kannimäe oli taas kiireim, saades 45 sekundit kiirema aja, kui rajameister pakkus – kuradi põud! Teisena tuli Lauri Malsroos, kolmandana Priit Tuisk. Enne homset Gunderseni on vahed korralikud – esimesest kolmandani ligi 14 minutit!
Meespaaridest esimesed AT Sport Team Neemela/Pohl, üle 10 min lähevad homme teele Team Craft koosseisus Miša Lukertšenko/Madis Kolo, ligi pool tundi hiljem stardivad SAQ SC esindajad Raini Valgma/Heigo Kopso.
Segapaaridest taas ülivõimas sõit RedBike tiimi poolt, kuid napilt siiski Gundersenist väljas Maris Lillep/Markus Vähi, teiselt kohalt stardivad viimasele etapile Pina Colada ratturid Kristi Märtin/Kaarel Sisask, vaid 4 minuti kaugusel teist kohta jahtimas Võromaa Ratturid Kadri Lehtme/Raul Soome.
Naissoolodest jätkab ainsana ja suveräänse liidrina Age Jaanimets!
