so one would guess the spectator barriers will thin out, but do you think they will still hear the Bolivian music, the rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr rrrr's and the Chavo chants

Spain's Joan Barreda Bort (Honda) has dominated the first part of the special, beating Marc Coma by 4'27" and Juan Pedrero García by 4'51". Cyril Despres sits in fourth, 5'48" back. Alain Duclos has lost time in spades and is now 16'21" behind the leader.

Atocha is pretty damn high, about 4,000m. There will be lots of people there but its not as big as Tupiza.

Uyuni on the other hand will be packed solid.

Tons of grungy, hippy-type, grubby gringo backpackers there as well, going WTF is going on today???

Yes - JBB is a clear 2nd overall, but still a massive way to go
