VERY interested in the route! I will stage my motos in Santa Cruz, Bolivia, then drop down to Salta to meet the Dakar as it enters for the rest day, then follow it until it leaves Iquique heading south. From there we will return to Cuzco, Peru.
Niel, I also don't think it will go as far north as Potosi. I think it will overnight near Uyuni as a marathon, heading the next day to Iquique.
So.... do you think you might ride down?
