Maksimov did his best, invasion from Russia

06.07.2021: It seemed that it was impossible to repeat the unique achievement of the Qatari Nasser Al-Attiyah of 2019 (the bronze medalist of the London Olympic Games in a skeet shooting won all the special stages of the rally in a car). But Alexander Maksimo


It seemed that it was impossible to repeat the unique achievement of the Qatari Nasser Al-Attiyah of 2019 (the bronze medalist of the London Olympic Games in a skeet shooting won all the special stages of the rally in a car).




But Alexander Maksimov managed to do it this summer. In a beautiful fight with the Pole Rafal Sonik, the racer convincingly won his prize.





Invasion from Russia


The Russian racer Sergei Kariakin has built a completely new ATV for the Silk Way Rally, changing the Open category (victory in 2019) to T4 (serial SSVs modified for cross-country rallies).



The driver from Ekaterinburg managed to enter the right category only on the second day of scrutineering, when all the shortcomings were corrected. Both the audience and the crew were the winners: competent and mistake-free driving helped Kariakin to win his second Silk Way Rally. And bright comments at the finish of the special stages have long become the hallmark of the driver.



T3 category also generated high audience interest. A large number of riders from Russia (both men and women) initially gave hope for their fight for the podium. And two crews managed to do it. Pavel Lebedev was the second in the final protocol, Pavel Silnov in a similar car climbed to the third step of the podium. The Frenchman Jean-Luc Pisson-Ceccaldi won the event.



Anastasia Nifontova (co-driver Ekaterina Zhadanova) was the best among all female crews, ahead of another Russian crew led by Maria Oparina (co-driver Lyudmila Petenko). Tatyana Sycheva with co-driver Alexander Alekseev also reached the finish line.




Silk Way Rally - Vasilyev’s retirement




In 2021 the Silk Way Rally attracted a large number of racers for whom this adventure was the first in their sports career. There was a dramatic struggle in the Car category.



In the absence of Nasser Al-Attiyah, the winner of the 2019 race, several crews including two from Russia were the favorites. Both Denis Krotov and Vladimir Vasilyev joined the battle for the White Tiger from the first meters of the distance. They also won the first three special stages.



Vasilyev, the current winner of the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Bajas, has the right to lament his fate: after the third leg he was ahead of the famous Frenchman Guerlain Chicherit by 23 seconds, but the the wheels punctured by sharp stones became a stumbling block – there were no more spares for the second part of the marathon in their car.



It was so offensive retirement. And Chicherit took the lead before the last day of the rally. Getting the job done was a matter of technique.



Denis Krotov secured the second position, and another Frenchman Jerome Pelichet was the third, like two years ago. The Russian crew of Alexei Ignatov from the GAZ Raid Sport team followed the venerable racers in the table.
