Before the homecoming


It took a little while from the last time diary. I was overwhelmed by despair of retired the rally and I was withdrawal in the hotel room alone….. wrong. The reason why I could not upadated my diary was I was offline from the ineternet for a while. Fianbala’s bivouac located in country side and there was no internet connection.

I left the team and I’m on the way to Santiago, the town of Dakar Rally goal alone. I feel so free and easy now and I felt the team members wondered how to treat me. It is better to off the company in this kind of situation. So I’m in the process of scheduling to return to Japan.

Though I say so myself, there is no good mark this time. It was the first Dakar Rally such a miserable in my history. It was the first time retired due to our miss too. This is the best situation for losing my aplomb lol, however I know the cause is in myself and it is easy to find what I do for the future.

The answer is growing myself. I will be better and stronger.

It’s a shame, but I can’t tell you about the next year now. I am not able to say like ” I do my best in the next year !” that is the difference and hard part of the rally compare to other motor sports.
I should say so but I am not that kind of person. Sorry.

I never give up. I will think deeply include what I want to do for the next year and go forward.

Thank you so much.
