Day 23 Inle Lake to Mandalay
A short lakeside section lead us to the "Inle Back Road". A long climb on wild rural roads run as a regularity section. During the test we got stuck behind a truck but made up the time and were only 3 seconds late for the first intermediary time check. At the end of the day we are able to keep our position in the rally.
After a pleasant run over a series of cols, we began a precipitious descent over a broken tarmac road to the valley to reach Mandalay. Driving in Mandalay requires strong nerves with motocycles coming from all corners in a random way.
As we drive towards the end of the rally the car is still going well but starts to sqweak more. We are already thinking about all the things to do for preparing the car for the 2016 Peking to Paris.
