Day 21 Kazan to Nizhny Novgorod
IOur marshals are now wearing the local uniform.
Today was a hot and quite relaxed day with no competition.
Tomorrow starts with a test on the race track followed by two tests on gravel and uphill in the afternoon.
Nizhny Novgorod formerly known as Gorky during the soviet regime, is east of Moscow at the confluence of the Volga and Oka rivers.
Like in many Russian towns, Lenin's statue is still there.
