Gobi Race: 6th Stage, 16.4 km.
The last stage was only 16.4 km but it was tough. We were all tired by 7 days of race, altitude, heat, heavy pack, stomach problems, sore musclesâ€¦ We all said before the start that we will go slowly butâ€¦ when the race started, everybody ran like crazy trying to improve his/her ranking. Once again I ran with John, helping each other; him to reach the 6th position and me to keep the 3rd one.

We ran the 16.4 km in 1h15 which felt more like 5hr to me. I finally kept my 3rd place overall and John finished 6th, just 1 minute ahead of George after 250 km or race !
Anne-Marie is 4th and 1st women once again! Justus is 5th. It has been a real pleasure to run this race you guys.
It has been also super fun to share the tent #3 with Fabrice, CĂ©cile, Frederic, Bradley Bull, Nicolas, Dan, Youssed and Sanya.
Thank you all for your emails and comments. Special Thanks to Berghaus and Suunto. Now I have to sort out 400 photos and footageâ€¦ :-)
