STAGE 4 TRACKING
STAGE 4: SAN SALVADOR DE JUJUY > SAN SALVADOR DE JUJUY
Connection 201km | Special Stage 418km | Total 619km
Marathon 1: No Mechanics! On many levels, the competitors face their first real test here. The special section takes place at an average of 3,500m altitude, with incessant changes in pace resulting from alternating sandy and rocky terrain. This grueling route will be on the agenda when everyone already has 2,500km in the saddle or bucket seat, which is already exhausting for the lower placed drivers. First and foremost, this is the start of a very particular marathon stage, with a closed area for the vehicles... and for the competitors.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
Ton of great photo's
Thanks Mike great shots
It seems that Gordon is the only driver to get a 1 hour penalty. Suspicious?
I don't trust the ASO after all shenanigans they pulled in the past. Many against Gordon.
any updates on penalty?. alledgedly robby nor the team have heard of any penalty's
dang,,, my buddy Tom Coronel is out too...
I know shame he is out.
