Second overall was Rajbir Rai followed by Jasmeet Chana in third. This was a career best for both podium finishers in an event marked by upsets galore.Chager who won three rallies last year had his campaign effectively sewn-up when co-favourites Carl Tundo and Ian Duncan retired in CS5 and CS1 respectively.Tundo who won last month’s Malindi Rally ended his interest with a blown turbo whilst Duncan cited heavy civilian traffic in the opening stage as his reason for withdrawal.Tundo led the rally after the first stage but Chager nosed ahead in CS5 following his rival’s woes.“I really had to keep an eye on the youngsters who were pushing really hard,” said Chager of the high-flying upcomers like Rajbir Rai and Jassi Chatthe who have been driving aggressively of late.The second round of the KCB KNRC took crews through some straight and flat-out sections around Machakos and its environs.All stages were centered around Nairobi-Mombasa highway at Ulu, Konza, Kilome, Kapiti Plains and Salama.Fans who turned out for the event were treated to some exhilarating displays of high octane rallying.Organizers KMSC ran a total of 11 stages with a competitive mileage totalling 173 kilometres. The most exciting stage of them all was the ‘power stage’ which also ran as one of the two designated spectator stages inside the People’s Park in Machakos.Sunday’s race saw some of the top contenders fall by the wayside.Issa Amwari retired on the transport road section in Ulu en-route to Tumaini School Service Park when he hit bump and damaged the EVO9’s sump-guard.Car number 28 of Waita Nzioka and Laban Cliff in an ex-Ben Muchemi EVO9 retired with gearbox problems.Hardeep Rehsi had a good run in the morning session but had his run impended by a puncture.Joe Muchiri (Subaru gc8) and Hussein Malik (EVO6) rolled after hitting a culvert on the same spot at the end of the 8.45km CS1 stage which ran from Katumani to Kapiti Plains.Jassi Chatthe kissed the event goodbye on transport after CS1 with engine failure. Chatthe proceeds to Ivory Coast or the Rally Bandama which is the first round of the African Rally championship next weekend.Imran Mogul and Adnan Din also retired with a broken left drive shaft while lying fifth.The third round of the KNRC heads to Kiambu on April Apri 26-27.Provisional final results-KCB Machakos Rally1.

Bale unaware of any Man United interest, delighted to sign Real Madrid deal

first_img Gareth Bale 1 Gareth Bale can see himself finishing his career at Real Madrid after signing a new long-term contract with the Spanish giants.The Wales international put pen to paper on Monday on a deal which ties him to Real until June 30, 2022, which expires just before he turns 33.Bale has been regularly linked with a big-money move back to England, with Manchester United reportedly leading the chase for his services, but the former Tottenham player only has eyes for Real.Asked if he could envisage ending his top-flight career at the Bernabeu even if it meant not playing in the Premier League again, Bale told a press conference: “Yeah, for sure. The reason I signed here for so long is because I’m very happy here.“I feel more comfortable every year that I’m here as well. I’m improving my Spanish, my family’s more settled. I fully intend to see out my contract here.“Obviously in the future, I don’t know when I’m going to retire, but I’m very happy here at the moment and for the next six years I’m not looking past that really.”United have long been linked with a move for Bale, even before the Welshman left Spurs to join Real in 2013 for a then-world record fee of £85.3million.As recently as last month there was speculation of a possible attempt by the Red Devils to sign the flying forward, but Bale himself insists he knows nothing about any transfer talk.He said: “I couldn’t tell you if anyone’s been interested. Since I’ve been here I’ve been fully concentrated on playing for Real Madrid.“I’m very happy here which shows why I’ve signed another six-year deal and we never really speak about these things. If (United) have (shown an interest) they have, I don’t know about it. The main thing for me is to concentrate on my football and everything else is dealt with behind the scenes.”Bale was also giving nothing away about the finances behind his new contract.Media reports have suggested the 27-year-old will now be earning in the region of £18million a year – £350,000 per week after tax – and is in the top three best-paid players in the world, along with Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Real team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo.When asked about his wages on Monday, Bale simply said: “That’s for me to know and no-one else to find out, sorry.”Bale left White Hart Lane without winning a major trophy with Spurs, but he has helped Real lift five pieces of silverware in three years, including the Champions League in 2014 and 2016.He has also scored 62 goals and recorded 34 assists in 135 official games for the Spanish giants, forming part of the team’s much-vaunted ‘BBC’ strikeforce alongside Ronaldo and Karim Benzema.Bale is now hoping for more of the same in the coming years after committing his future to the 11-time European champions.He said: “Obviously I’m very very happy today. When I first came here I wanted so succeed here, wanted to win trophies here. And sitting here now having renewed my contract is another dream come true and hopefully there’s more trophies and titles to win here again.“It’s Real Madrid, the biggest club in the world I think. When an opportunity comes up to play for Real Madrid you don’t turn it down. I’ve loved every minute of it out here.“I definitely made the best decision. It matches all my ambitions.”Bale concedes it has not all been plain-sailing for him in Spain, with the former Southampton youngster having had to deal with injuries and criticism.But he insists all that has helped him develop as a player and a person.He said: “It’s been a difficult journey. It’s very difficult for British players to come over to any European club. I’ve had my difficult times and I’ve had good times. I think it’s all a learning curve.“I’ve really grown up as a person and I’ve enjoyed every experience, whether it’s been good or bad.“I feel happy here, I feel loved by the fans here and want to give everything for the shirt to win try and win as many trophies as I can.”last_img read more
