- We are very happy to win in Dubai Baja ... There was intense competition, especially in the last episode ... We managed to catch up Kasimmi and, unfortunately, 10 km to the finish we got stuck in the sand, it was an extremely tense moment. Realizing that we had to get out quickly, we ventured and eventually started to jump out of all the dunes, winning a victory in the final episode. This round was perfect, we worked fine with Timo. This winning is an another good sign, - says Cuba Pshigonski.
