Dakar 2017, stage 6: The mud grabs hold of the KH-7 Epsilon Team


The Dakar caravan has lived a day atypical with the cancellation of the sixth stage, which has resulted in a long trip by road to get to La Paz, capital of Bolivia, where the participants of the rally have been met with a welcome mass-despite not having competed on the day. However, there are at least a team that has not had a day ‘holiday’ and which is still in full dispute of the test. we Talked about the truck of the KH-7 Epsilon Team, training in the competing veterans Jordi Juvanteny, Jose Luis Criado and Enric Gonzalez.

however, the MAN of the KH-7 Epsilon Team leads stuck in the mud more than 24 hours waiting for a machine that can unclog this giant 6×6 truck to be able to stay in the race, as long as ASO allow re-enlist. Although in normal conditions the problems of Juvanteny, Raised and Gonzalez would be synonymous with abandonment, the fact of having been trapped in a quagmire to help other participants opens the hopes of being able to stay in the race. All of them are in good condition despite the fact that overnight stay in the point kil√≥metrico 125 of the fifth stage.

The fact of not having stage today and tomorrow we celebrate the day of rest in Peace can give them an opportunity to reenlist, although the penalty that they might receive and the time lost prevents them from fighting for the goal that they had, and who was no other than try to add the title of the production, and the trucks 6×6. Until the fateful moment in which they were engulfed in the stage between Tupiza and Oruro, the truck of the KH-7 Epsilon Team occupied the fourth position in the production category, and were second among the trucks 6×6.
