STAGE 9 TRACKING
STAGE 9: BELEN > BELEN
Connection 111km | Special Stage 285km | Total 396km
This loop stage will not really be one for motorbikes and quad bikes, which will finish the first part of this second marathon stage in an isolated bivouac. Prior to this they will have spent the day, alongside the drivers in the other categories, almost entirely off-piste, both in the vegetation-scattered dunes and on harder terrains, sometimes on river beds. Physically, the day might prove to be a significant challenge, as the mercury soars. The hardiest drivers will also be those who are the most clear headed, able to make the right navigational choices, a major challenge of this special section.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
Today Gordon starts right behind Loeb with De Villiers and Poulter just in front, the stage is only a 1000m above sea level, we wil see how the Pug does against the 3 V8's with lungs full of air, expext a race within a race here today
As far as I can gather todays stage is on tracks, sandy and bumps like Baja?
