Dunes: the last ditch attempt

The site chosen in El Salvador at high altitude towers over the usual location of the bivouac in Copiapo. This position will ensure that the Camanchaca, the morning mist which sometimes hinders the start of the stages, will be avoided. Sand will be featured on the route again, in particular with a big string of dunes to be overcome at the end of the special stage. And if there are dunes, this automatically means that vehicles will be blocked in the sand! Therefore, in the categories where competitors are neck and neck, the leaders may put themselves at risk.

Quotes

stage 12 : 001 - CYRIL DESPRES: I really enjoyed the day
It was a nice stage. Quite fast at the beginning, a lot of rocks also and then not that easy navigation on the last part. I'm pretty happy to navigate and I really enjoyed the day a lot, which is really important. [more]
