SS 8: Lesjöfors 1

Norwegian sensation Mads Østberg was first on the road on the second day of Rally Sweden started on the 15 km long-distance Lesjöfors. And Østberg got to, like Sebastien Loeb yesterday, act snowplow on the road.
– It was a bit more snow than I had expected, said Østberg for WRC radio. Rally second overall Mikko Hirvonen cut the Östbergs lead in half and is now just 6.7 seconds behind the Norwegian. Sebastien Loeb won the special stage eight, one-tenth of a second ahead of the rally third overall Petter Solberg.
