Welcome to our 2014 stage reports, presenting the rally on the way from Almeria to Dakar. Click on the particular day and check out the pictures, videos, results and multilingual information on the stage.

Stage #2: Taoirirt - Merzouga
Day: 02
Date: Jan 21, 2014
Route: Taoirirt - Merzouga
Length: 460km
Country: Morocco
Character: competition

Tonight we bivouac in Merzouga at the foot of Erg Chebbi, the highest dune in Morocco, after a long and demanding day which started before dawn with a 120 km liaison to the start of the first of the two timed sections of the day under sub freezing temperatures. The timed route descended from a table top plateau down dried up seasonal streams onto the rocky plain bellow finally culminating with a dune top finish short distance from the comforts of the camp. There were a number of accidents and mishaps, fortunately all without injuries and with everyone in camp in time for supper but nevertheless serving as a reminder to take it easy and stay safe. The spectacular scenery will continue tomorrow following a renown route to M’Hamid.

"What could possibly go wrong"
CBVRacing. "The race (Dakar) is what it is, it is being offered to racers, if they chose to sign up they should know that there are only 5 outcomes at the end of the two weeks: Finish, Mechanical, Abandon, Injuries, Death."
