Snijders started controlled with a problem free first stage, finishing in position 101.
With a bit overweight due to a topped up fuel tank, Marcel knew he would not end this stage in the top of the ranking. In the Male-Moto class however it's important to start without to much risk. The race is yet to truly begin, and energy must be saved, said the experienced pilot after the first stage. Today's stage was a short 84km without big surprises.
After arrival in the Bivac Marcel will make camp, set up his tent, and start with the daily maintenance and mechanical checks on his KTM rally bike. After will follow the briefing for the next day stage and diner. The day will end with preparation of the roadbook and a well deserved rest.
