Can someone tell me what the CH's (in a blue circle) means on the profile for today's stage on the Dakar page, I get the rest of it and now they've thrown me
Anna-Marie, CH-CH are start and end of the neutralization zone. The racing special has two parts today, Km 0 -> Km 229 is the first; then the timing clocks stop, the riders refuel and ride on the road for 97 km (probably avoiding a nature reserve zone or mining operations).
Then, at Km 326 (the 2nd blue CH), they are let off on the timed special again, racing the final 128 Km.
Clear as mud?
