STAGE 5: SAN SALVADOR DE JUJUY > UYUNI

Connection 315km | Special Stage 327km | Total 642km

COURSE OVERVIEW

All round vigilance is required for this second part of the marathon stage: in addition to managing mechanics, particularly the tyres, all the drivers will have to pay attention to their own bodies’ reactions. Entry into Bolivia is also marked by an abrupt increase in altitude, rising to 4,600m –the higher point in Dakar’s story- during the day’s special section. Technically, it is also in this stage that the rally steps up a gear, with the first off-piste sections as well as some navigational gems which might be a headache for some navigators…


The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.

Good Morning Folks.
What did I miss?

as tight as 2, 3, and 4 are, should be a good opportunity for navigational errors...maybe we can make up time if someone skips past one

That is great. See what he can do when running with the big boys. Now let's hope he can keep it up especially the vertical stages at the end.
