COURSE OVERVIEW

It was a painful experience for many competitors when they discovered the area last year. At the beginning of the special stage, the dunes follow one another, each one like the next, strung out in a never-ending desert capable of unsettling the best technical specialists. In the opposite direction, Stéphane Peterhansel and “Nani” Roma, both of whom are masters when it comes to crossing dunes, each lost almost fifteen minutes there, and risked missing out on the first two places of the overall standings. And the level of difficulty will be even more demanding this year! During the crucial stage of the first week, the rally will be even tougher for motorcyclists: they will quail on a 2-km slope, of which the gradient will put the descent of Iquique on a par with a gentle children’s slide.

Dam, a 2000 meter decent....One Mini flipped today and they decended less then a 1000

It's all downhill from here... Seriously like the earlier start for stage 4. Keeping my fingers crossed for a good run for RG.

hope she was ok???

Let's give some kudos to the crew who works on the Hummer and tries to sleep while they travel.
About 10% up hill sand grade at the end . That's going to interesting. This one is going to change things a lot.
Will Robby have to fuel as many times as the rest?

REFUELING NOT ALLOWED. HUMMER HAS 100 GALLON TANK
