The Dakar knows this region in detail … but not yet the dunes that pilots will have to surf on the vast sandy plateau that they will tackle in the first part of the day. On their way, they will meet the assistance vehicles that drive towards Belén … and will for the first time be allowed to intervene in special. But beware, the clock is ticking! Finally, it is a competition of navigation which will be played in the crossings of rios at the end of special.
