After the drubbing Pontus Tidemand and the whole WRC2 pack took off Andreas Mikkelsen in the French Alps, the tall Swede wanted this win badly. And he drove brilliantly. The factory Skoda driver gave best to Ole Christian Veiby early doors, but once we were in the woods there was only going to be one winner. Tidemand was on superb form to take a dominant class win at home. What was doubly satisfying was seeing off his step-father, Henning Solberg, who was a late WRC2 entry in a Fabia R5.
