“the stage began to wonder: twisted tracks, the stones had a lot to fly and to go right, – he wrote Karjakin in Instagram. – Then on the wheel of our buggy Can-Am Maverick cracked disk. After 70 km it cracked the second disc, and the liaison – cracked third. The wheels start to pull, but, thank God, we only stayed for one change. Had to drive 60 km to poluspuschennyh wheel. Lost, of course, at top speed, and cornering. But overall the stage went well for us. Well, that was the area of service where we put new wheels”.
