Australian Trevor Wilson has finished 10th in Stage 3 of the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge.
The 27 year old from Brisbane is competing in his first major international event and has been adapting to the conditions very well.
Riding a Husqvarna 450 Rally Replica for the HT Husqvarna Rally team, Trevor was placed 19th after the first 2 days of competition. Today’s 10th place has moved him further up the overall rankings.
In a Facebook post this evening Trevor says he had a clean run today with no navigation mistakes, and is understandingly very happy with the result.
Paulo Goncalves lead the event going into today’s stage, with the first 4 bikes separated by just 1m21s. This year’s Dakar winner Sam Sunderland was 5th, 4m15s behind the leader.
However Sunderland has had a strong day today, taking the stage win and finishing 9m5s ahead of second place Matthias Walkner to take the lead back.
