Stage #6: Smara - Boujdour & Lite Class Final Ceremony
Day: 06
Date: Jan 25, 2014
Route: Smara - Boujdour
Length: 415km
Country: Morocco
Character: competition

The last stage of the Lite Race provided a challenging mix of terrain and many navigational challenges. The first special of the day was fast over relatively flat terrain heading out towards the ocean from Smara. After a quick liaison the stage continued with a second special where the course descended towards the Atlantic through a labyrinth of steep canyons. Any navigational mistake here resulted in significant time lost and the rocky terrain caused a lot of damage which the teams were repairing well into the night.
