At the end of the day, we are looking forward to a spectacular 3/4 mile drop of the race, down the tallest sand dune in the world, in Iquique Here is what the race will be like today we are expecting a spectacular 3/4 mile drop on the tallest sand dune in the world. To reach Jujuy, the special stage has been split into two parts, separated by a neutralised section. On the first part, the bikers will again be racing on their own track, plunging into the desert canyons where the red of the sand and cliffs is the dominant colour. There is a striking contrast with the second timed portion: the race moves to earthen tracks and the vehicles will disappear into thick green forest. The trucks have been excused from this challenge, deemed too dangerous for the windscreens which are at the same level as tree branches.
