Optic 2000 Tunisia Rally 2005

April 11, 2005  Finished Race
Chris Blais 4th (
11’49)   4th overall (1.23’48)

My head is still hurting but I am really happy to be at the finish. A little bit disappointed not to be on the podium because of my crash, but relieved that it wasn’t worse. Like Andy, I learned a lot here – the most important thing I learned was to expect the unexpected. I will stay in Europe now and do some testing and hopefully be back on another rally raid soon.”
