The next day was full of 17Kmâ€™of gravity and all the participant were looking forward for this. The stage started after 4 kms of joy ride session. In no time the riders were seen ripping the trails with dust. The section was 13kms long and full of loose gravel and some nice and fast hairpin bends. The riders had smile on their faces at the end of the stage. . But it was not easy for few. The tough trail left some riders dragging their bikes down with flats and technical problems. The riders who had to pay the most were the day 1â€™s top contender Devender and Brestu who had all the skills and stamina but luck was not In their side.
Both of them had technical problems and could not finish the stage and ended with a DNF. That was really disheartening for most of us.
