Dakar.com:

The modified course only affects the motorcycles and quads, since the cars and trucks are not going to Uyuni, Bolivia. The special will start from CP3 (km 103), just before the border, near the city of La Quiaca. This means the first part of the special will be 130 kilometres long instead of the original 232.

Much more interesting question is how does ASO look at the transportation of Tom's bike over the liaison at the 6th stage. Tom said in the interview that he found some local who helped to transport the bike to the bivouac. In my book this is not in accordance with rules but it seems that ASO is willing to bend rules somewhat after all these numerous 'gates' we saw on previous stages.
Yes that’s the good question?
Or did he get new coil in after WP 4 from he’s support team whom were there or was it he in tow….just speculation…. He didn't get time to WP 5 either ????
