Im also busy with a rally route in Africa with very long stages.

But this route....are we sure its going all the way to Potosi? Looked more like Tarija-Uyuni- Iquique to me ??? ...

So happens to be in the region I travel to for work on a regular basis.

There is some kickass riding there, but I suspect there will be some off piste mixed with long pistes in high altitude desert.

The question is are they going for distance or technicality? My guess is technicality will be low because the frenchies are nervous about the altitide (pissies! ) and the distances will be long because it sounds like long, untimed (Seriously??? ) marathon stages will be the order of the day.

Maybe turning it back into an endurance event rather than a technical one?

As always these things take time....let me sleep on it.. before I conjure up something. The chances of error will be high at this early stage, but I will give it bash.
