Riaan van Niekerk shared this pic, from Dakar 2014 Stage 3, on his Facebook page. The track looks very hazardous...
His comment was:
"Found this pick on twitter. This was part of this years Dakar route. This was nearly at the top of the mountain at 4300m. And yes..., we were on rally bikes that weigh just under 200kg when it's filled up. Bike had no power up there and the altitude made me gasping for air. Think it would be a great idea to enter the roof this year on my rally bike to prep for dakar 2015"
