De Rooy regains time in 'super-soft dunes'
Finally they were there: dunes. And difficult ones too, which caused shifts in the ranking of the Africa Eco Race. The eighth stage was won by Mathieu Serradori, who took over the lead from Vladimir Vasilyev. Gerard de Rooy crossed the line 26 minutes after Serradori and advanced to fourth in the general ranking, where he has almost four hours to make up to the Frenchman.
