Sertoes 2013 - The 2nd longest rally in the world.
« on: August 07, 2013, 05:01:16 am »
Here is reason why you should do it + what this 10 day rally entails.

(Rally nuts can watch all that stage video's at the bottom of this post. ;) )


<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/SA-JdWOp0qM" target="_blank" class="new_win">http://www.youtube.com/v/SA-JdWOp0qM</a>

Here is a summary of the result translated from www.webventure.br :

Paul "Speedy" Gonçalves, as it is known, is a veteran of off-road racing since 1991. 34, his best performance was in the Dakar Rally in 2009, when he finished in 10th place in the overall competition, 2nd place in the 450cc category and 1st in Super Production Amador.

Paulo Gonçalves is champion on the bikes and decide Nahas title finalPeterhansel straight wins last special and sacred to champion

By World FIM Cross Country Rally 2013, the Portuguese driver finished second on the evidence of Abu Dhabi and Qatar, for just a few seconds apart for the champion. This first title in Gonçalves Country Rally, and even in a tight race with the likes of Frenchman Cyril Despres and Marc Coma, the competitive advantage could start slowly, step by step.

At the start of the rally, Gonçalves started accelerating with everything, winning the first two steps, but the third, due to a problem in the middle of the track, where it tangled in a wire missing to complete the 15 km race, was left behind by Marc eat. In the next phase, it was time to devote himself Despres, leaving the Portuguese driver only with the third, also behind Coma.


...Which is why you should never trust google translate  :lol8:

Anyway Speedy came first with Cyril and Coma 2nd and third, the latter two coasting on their great results from the other FIM would championship events. Speedy came 2nd overall for the year, and Cyril 1st with Coma 3rd. Coma (my guy BTW) got some wire stuck in this wheel in the 3rd stage and lost some time it seems.

The Portos out there might want to correct my very rough translation.  :deal: :patch:

Here are selection of photos as well (The many more great shots are here http://www.webventure.com.br/sertoes2013/galerias/fotos/id/1500 )

And our winner Mr. Speedy Gonclaves




Here on the right with Marc Coma - what a boytjie :hello2:



Clearly, speedy he was on the edge of his seat all the way  :ricky:



Nearly all his photos were radical. Different corner, different photo.







This guy is barely hanging on!  :biggrin:  Looks like Mambat in action >:D   ( Okay, Mambat went maybe bit too far...  :lamer: )




And here are some of Coma. Always looking so relaxed and comfortable.
















Here is the prologue, complete with epic bike somersault. :eek: Seems they did not have a huge crowd watching this year? :scratch:
