Dakar : Problem to follow the Live coverage
After this third and final day in Morocco, the competitors will have covered 1250kms of special, a record before entering Mauritania. The dune lovers that had a first taste during stage 4 will now have to wait until Mauritania
to enjoy more sand. The day's program will be a lot trickier, sinuous and technical. Between the holes and the stones, the bikers, drivers and co-drivers will need that extra something and also some luck to avoid punctures.
It's probably a mix of these qualities that allowed Carlos Sainz to clinch victory yesterday and to re-capture the overall leadership. On a purely technical aspect, he has proved on all the different terrains of the World. But Stéphane Peterhansel, who suffered a big navigation mistake that cost him dearly yesterday, will want to catch up lost time. And the man is a specialist when it comes to revenge. Time has come for Peter to hit back.
Fog in Tan Tan
Due to bad weather conditions and heavy fog in Tan Tan, all the planes and means of transmission are still blocked in Ouarzazate.
The live coverage of the race will not be able to be done in a normal way.
