All points in view:


KM 138,93:


KM 139,74:


KM 139,91:


KM 140,19:


About 50% of this stage is identical to Dakar 2011 Stage 1, in the opposite direction. Portions were also part of a WRC type rally later in 2011.

Marathon, Salar, why only motos because it's a question of logistics. alot of vehicles. Very complicated. No asphlt. Not possible to take trucks etc. We're hear and we have to do it, but only with bikes. More trucks, more people, more helicopters, more medics,

we do the route 4 or 5 times each year.
