STAGE 6 TRACKING
STAGE 6: UYUNI > UYUNI
Connection 181km | Special Stage 542km | Total 723km
The longest special section of the Dakar takes place on the 6th day of consecutive racing. And that is not the only difficulty of this operation, which will take place between 3,500 and 4,200m in altitude. The pace and surfaces change constantly, alternating between sand and rock, which may be disconcerting, especially if it rains. Glimpses of the Salar d’Uyuni are but one of the visual delights on the agenda. Meanwhile, the truck category, which will race separately on this 6th stage, will visit the home town of the President Evo Morales.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
