Stage #3: Merzouga - Mhamid
Day: 03
Date: Jan 22, 2014
Route: Merzouga - Mhamid
Length: 295km
Country: Morocco
Character: competition

Stage 3 followed traditional pistes from Marzouga to MíHamid through some quintessential Moroccan landscapes through narrow valleys guarded by ancient forts, across hard rocky plains and over expansive sand dunes. The racing actions heated up in both car and motorbike classes. While there were no crashes, several teams suffered breakdowns and the local garages are busy performing emergency repairs well into the early morning hours. After 3 days of racing the fatigue is starting to set in but spirits are high and the camp abuzz with anticipation of the days ahead.
