some of the riders take on yesterday and a pic or 3- difficult website for actual results but looks like the expected same hooligans in the top 10


It was really nice, honestly. It was cool to ride with not so much navigation, because you can see all the track and just pushing a lot. But the river crossings were tricky, because the cars and the trucks moved some stones and every river was a big challenge. Finally, I have a good day, I feel confident and the landscape was again super-super nice. The stage feels really different, than yesterday.

with 5 days to go some of the riders take on yesterday
Matthias and I have the same problems. The waypoints are missed, I lost a lot of time. Iím sure there has to be some type of understanding here, because we all shooting for seconds. Today the pace was much higher and the course was actually not in the terrible condition considering a bunch of KAMAZ trucks crossed it. We took better lines with the water crossings. So, it was a nice stage, I felt comfortable on a bike.


You donít know the show I did in the river. You cannot imagine! I went through the same track as yesterday, but the water took me like this. I said, ok, I would go down the river and see, where to exit. Impossible! Almost fall down. Turn back. And then through the tree. I got stuck! I was pushing like three minutes and I said to the guys, hey, please, you have enough pictures of me, suffering, enough filming. Please, give me a hand, I canít move my arms any more. He said, ok, but barely touched the wheel. Can you push a little harder? The pace was so high! After the river I was praying I didnít touch any stone, because I was not going be able to handle it.

...shortened Silk done and dusted with Walkner winning for KTM

КТМ is unbeatable

As in 2019, almost all the leaders of the FIM Cross-Country Rallies World Championship came to the Silk Way Rally. The battle for the one-and-a-half coefficient in the standings of the series, the round of which is the competition in Russia, unfolded between the riders of the leading factory teams.
Argentinian Franco Caimi (Hero Motosports Team Rally) set a high pace, becoming the best at the first leg. The World Championship leader and Silk Way Rally debut Ross Branch (Monster Yamaha Rally Official Team) took the lead in the general classification the very next day, but the marathon leg stopped a rider from Botswana: an engine breakdown led to a retirement.

Matthias Walkner of Red Bull KTM Factory Racing took advantage of a competitorís failure. The Austrian, for whom this Silk Way Rally was the first, only had to win the marathon leg to rise to the first line and confidently win the competition. The team from Austria showed a 100% result - two titles in two editions of the event.

Australian Daniel Sanders (Gasgas Factory Racing) excelled at three stages out of five, but in the overall standings he stopped just one step away from the first place. Caimi rounded out the top three, he attacked the American Skyler Howes (Rockstar Energy Husqvarna Factory Racing) on ​​the last day, but lost only six seconds in 650 competitive kilometers.

But the debutants of the Silk Way Rally Oleg Pavlenko from Magnitogorsk and the Belarusian Anastasia Lianiova did not care about the time. The only woman in the motorcycle category declared at the finish line that she got great pleasure from the performance and is ready to celebrate her birthday at the race again.

The Portuguese Joaquim Rodrigues received a special prize from the general partner Gazprom PJSC at the awards ceremony in Gorno-Altaysk. The award ďFor the Will to WinĒ was given to the participant who showed the maximum courage, perseverance and dedication in achieving the main goal of the entire Silk Way Rally Ė the finish of this most difficult marathon! Rodrigues managed to continue to ride to the finish line in Gorno-Altaysk after his motorcycle was flooded with water while crossing the river. He had to disassemble the engine, pour out the water and reassemble it. After that he managed to enter the top ten according to the event results.
