Mika Ahola has finally broke away from the pact (or should I say potential rivals have dropped back or dropped out). Ahola (VOR 530) holds a 35+/- second lead over third place Fretign (Yamaha 250 2-s) and Tiainen (KTM 520). 3 years ago Ahola was in the same postition and got stuck in the starting gate, only to loose the overall by less than 1 second. Merriman fell way back. Day 6 is ~25 miles of riding and a final moto.
