Hi Tony, let Thomas know I'm supporting him a lot. C'MON THOMAS, C'MON.

Such an amazing YAM he's got this year!

I wait for some more picture.

AFRICA RACE ... THE REAL AFRICAN RACE

I think the correct Stage 3 results have been added over here and show Guillaume first overall so far!

Martin also hanging in there and bringing it in steady in 13th for 11th overall...

Gutted about Thomas, does anyone know if he will continue tomorrow?

From Vishakha, Tony's mom:

Thomas just called me. He is fine. He said that one racing car drove over his bike and some parts are damaged. He is not sure whether he can get the bike fixed though. How terrible. I am so glad that he is ok. He said that he was just next to the bike standing...how lucky nothing happened to him. Thank you for all your support my friends.


Good to hear he's ok

Stefano Turchi, winner of the first two stages, had a very bad fall, he's flying back to Italy and let's hope nothing too serious...

Austrian Helly Frauwelner has stopped in the stage, not sure if mechanical or crash...

Results of the stage published, Guillaume holds on to the overall with Frenchman Dubois taking the stage today

top 3 overall:

Guillaume Martens
Martin Fontyn +16.16
Norbert Dubois + 22.53

update on Thomas Schattat, he DNSed today. Bummer. Apparently he & his bike were in plain view when car #203 ran over his WR. (I wonder if it was a Petterhansel fanboy perfecting his "savoire faire" on the bikers. Asshole)

Sorry to hear of Stefano, he really was flying by a significant margin on the first two days, I hope it's nothing serious as well
