The sportsman famous for truck-racing in Dakar is finishing preparation for the new season in the United Arab Emirates.
"I am flying to Minsk tomorrow. I took part in two stages of the European Championship, but the results are not the best in this season yet. I will try to improve in Belarus," the racer said. The tournament will be held at Drozdy water reservoir. Single-hull boats will take part in the 6-hour race on September 9. Racers from Russia, Estonia, Latvia and Hungary are expected to participate in the tournament.
