Volvo Ocean Race: All to play for in finale:
Dongfeng Race Team can’t buy a break but still remain tied for the lead of the 2017-18 Volvo Ocean Race. Even on points with MAPFE which has won 3 legs, and Brunel which has won 3 legs, Dongfeng hasn’t yet got a bullet.
Dongfeng Race Team had started the latest leg as the overall leader, and for a time during the leg looked poised to get that first win before disaster struck again.
Volvo Ocean Race: Just insane but good:
Team Brunel has become the darling of the Volvo Ocean Race.
It didn’t look this way after the first half of the 2017-18 edition in which the team was left in sixth place, sitting on just 20 points after Leg 6. In comparison, MAPFRE, the race leader at the time, had already won 39 points.
