STAGE 11 TRACKING
STAGE 11: LA RIOJA > SAN JUAN
Connection 281km | Special Stage 431km | Total 712km
The level of difficulty remains the same, but variety will favour the most flexible of drivers and teams. Sand in all its forms will feature, particularly fesh-fesh, the most volatile and heavy kind, which demands both dexterity and patience. But speed will also be an advantage in other, straighter sections, featuring gravel and pebbles. Opportunities will be few and far between, but there is still time to shake up the standings, since the terrain will be favourable to creating significant gaps.
The GREEN section of the route is the connection , the RED is the Special Section of the stage.
Al Attiyah ahead of DeVilliers by 15m in the overall ,as long as he dont stop 180k from the end of the special for fuel in an unauthorized zone he should be 2nd overall by end of today behind peterpecker
