I see some sandy whoops on tomorrow's stage, then a very short little dune section just a couple of km before the finish.

Awesome first Stage F5ing folks!

Woke up as they were off, followed as they hit that ASS, caught various videos before ASO knocks them down, and Managed to get a short ride in to boot!

Tomorrow I gotta go to my place of employment....... Off to wash the 200...

There wasn't anything above 2000M according to the course profile.

They will definitely be getting some extended altitude later, especially in Bolivia. That will be a challenge for many.

If the altitude is bothering them now they're going to be in trouble in Bolivia.

On the official rankings it looks like Merge picked up. 41 min penalty - it must have been serious as he is French and Yamaha
