I can think of another successful rider
(Quiz: 2 times Athens 24 hour winner, Rally Albania winner, Evia Rally winner, and a few other races that come to mind)

Yes, they both did with no problems - I've got some photos of them (amongst the hundreds I took today out on the stage) so please be patient while I sort through them all and pick out the choice ones... Jx

Good to know, thanks. Take your time Jenny, your reporting & photo documenting have been invaluable and exemplary, I'm sure I speak for most of us on here.

And she started only few years ago.
You will not see her a lot on the internet participating in "opinion" marathons but you will find her riding or racing almost everything in the Balkan's area in the last 3 years with success.
After this race her and Vasilis Boudros are definitely the 2 most successful rally raiders in Greece and Timi the only Greek lady in racing with such a pal mares.
I am really happy that they belong to my "family" of racing people.
We only did minor things to get her going and she paid us back with this.
We are really proud.

Hi Gian - not sure, if her race number is 327 as it says on the start list, then I'll have a look through once I down load all the photos - I got shots of most people today...

Stage 7 (AM) Results Posted! NED holds second place!

Ned posted 14th in this morning's Stage 7 but only 9 minutes off the lead which means he retains his 2nd place overall by a wide margin!

Everyone just headed out to the last afternoon run (a short obligatory stage that is untimed, but must be completed). As long as he completes this short mass-start motocross-style run, he is assured a podium finish in second.

This morning's results were just posted so he doesn't know himself yet, nor does Jenny who ran out to get some more good pics.

Just thought I'd let the ADV crew know the latest from Douz.

Next is the partying!
