Eduard finished the 6 stage on the second place, roughly 2 hours behind the winner of the leg from Tyumen to Omsk. Unfortunately the second Austrian competitor Andreas Fuchs had to quit the race due to major knee problems, causing Edi to become second overall. Now there are only 3 drivers left, who are still in the race without any penalty time.
With a night start in the city centre of Omsk the next leg will kick off tonight – again more than 600 kilometres are waiting for the athletes.
