dakar com
The winner of yesterday's stage, Nasser Al-Attiyah (Buggy Qatar Red Bull), will open the road to Arica for the 129 car race competitors authorised to start the fifth stage of the Dakar 2013 this morning. There will be different routes for the Car/Truck and Bike/Quad categories. The cars and trucks are on a 284 km link stage to the start of the 172-km long special stage. The bikes and quads will set off at 8.30 AM local time directly onto the day's timed section (136-km long) before heading along the link stage (275-km long) to the bivouac at Arica in Chile.

In the mean time I have to check in here occasionally for an update and be happy with that.
Thanks to everyone that does contribute.
Cheers

Youve got my support, Jay.

It's a catch-22, because the traditional broadcasters are the ones that the "accidental" fan tune in to. It costs more to cover in-depth (and the fan has to invest the time into digesting it), but the more interesting it is, the more people will watch (and pay the bills), ...
