It's not how I remember it unfortunately! It's flat for the first 30km or so, 50km of an old bedouin route - bid wide desert highway. A few huge climbs separated by miles of open desert and a bit of technical stuff after the refuel. Maybe they changed the route from the last few years, but I doubt it.

Anyway, if anyone can do it it's Sam and he has the fitness to go flat out for the whole stage.
