STAGE 6 TRACKING
STAGE 6: ANTOFAGASTA > IQUIQUE
Connection 392km | Special Stage 255km | Total 657km
The route will then climb up the Pacific coast towards Iquique. The motorcycles and quad bikes will cover a few extra kilometres as part of the special stage: a detour will take them into endurance-type terrain and onto mountain ridges with views over the sea. All the competitors will then explore the dunes which run alongside and dominate the coastline. But they won’t arrive at the bivouac via the famous descent. For the first time, the half-way point in the race will be marked on a podium in the centre of Iquique. The encounter between drivers and their fans will be emotional, following the earthquake which affected the region at the start of the year.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
