Coma :

(He was in a hurry to go) I had a small mechanical problem
A small problem with a stone entering behind the gear lever and causing a delay.

But I fixed it and finished okay.

150km found a group of cows and I came off damaging my road book

Crash Bang Bang Barreda!!!
My guess is he won't finish. Too fast, too much "off's"
