"A terrible stage. More and more slippery. The heavy rain has filled the ruts and we're aquaplaning everywhere. I came here to learn the stages but I'm not learning much today."

"Okay, this morning wasn't a great start, but that had a lot to do with the conditions. On these gravel stages I've never had a good rhythm and now I feel I have made progress. I can leave this day satisfied with the afternoon. Hey, not every day can be a good one."
