Koen Wauters en Pascal Feryn (Toyota) Een memorabele rit.

Koen Wauters en Pascal Feryn (Toyota) hebben er hun langste dag in de Dakar opzitten. Om 03.30u Belgische tijd bereikten ze het bivak. Na afloop van het eerste deel van de klassementsrit was het duo opgerukt naar de 32ste plaats algemeen. Het tweede deel na de neutralisatie verliep minder vlot.


“In het begin van het tweede deel was er een moeilijk passage door een rivierbedding met veel stenen en fesh fesh” zegt Koen Wauters. “Het probleem was dat veel trucks daar voor de auto’s gepasseerd waren en dat de piste zo diep was uitgereden dat er geen doorkomen aan was. Iedereen zat vast, iedereen zat te klooien. We moesten elkaar helpen om eruit te geraken. De enige doorgang, al kon je dat moeilijk een doorgang noemen, was geblokkeerd door een wagen. Dus die hebben we eerst achteruit moet trekken om verder te kunnen rijden.”


“Over de 12 eerste kilometers hebben we ontzettend lang gedaan zodat we de laatste 70 km in het donker moesten afwerken” zegt Pascal Feryn. “Koen heeft op een bepaald moment meer voor de wagen gelopen dan naast me gezeten om gewoon een manier te vinden om uit die rivierbedding te raken. Er lagen overal rotsen en stenen, van een piste was geen sprake. De sporen waren ontzettend diep.”


“Volgens mij zijn er maximum 50 wagens aan de finish geraakt” pikt Koen Wauters opnieuw in. “Al de rest heeft een alternatieve route gevolgd, waypoints gemist en dus de etappe niet uitgereden. Ik weet niet hoe de organisatie dit gaat aanpakken maar als ze het reglement toepassen mag de helft naar huis. Zo’n vaart zal het wel niet lopen maar ik hoop dat ze straftijd krijgen en dat wij beloond worden voor ons geploeter.


We gaan het in het oog houden want als je niet oplet dan zou de organisatie het aandurven om die kerels nog voor ons te laten starten. Als de organisatie straftijd geeft aan de rijders die een alternatieve route namen  dan zouden wij kunnen opschuiven naar de derde plaats in de T2 klasse. Nu gaan we eerst slapen en morgenvroeg zullen we wel weten hoe ze het hebben aangepakt.”


“Dit was de zwaarste Dakar etappe van de voorbije 10 jaar” hijgt Pascal Feryn nog na. “En vrijdag wacht ons nog een zeer zware etappe. Koen zal achter het stuur kruipen en hij mag proberen de gigantische duinen over te raken. Ik zal proberen een goede gids te zijn. De eerste 40 km van de rit is geneutraliseerd omdat er teveel water staat. De wedstrijd begint pas aan waypoint 1. Als we daar goed doorkomen hebben we het zwaarste gehad en komt Lima stilaan in zicht.”
