Our Rawhyde team has had a great dinner last night, with two succulent pigs that spent several hours, sprinkled with sea salt, in a pizza oven in Jorje’s back yard. More on Jorje’s and his family later.
Here is what the Dakar tells us about today’s track;
For this stage entirely covering new ground, the competitors’ compass bearings will be set to the north, leading the rally into a backdrop of forest which will remind some observers of bush landscapes. During part of the day, the bikes and quads will again be separated from the cars and trucks. The acrobats on two wheels will have a field day on an old track where jumps are plentiful and sometimes spectacular. In the cockpits of the cars, the drivers can also expect a bumpy ride: endless hops and bounds as well as blind corners will be on the menu.
