    Get in line!
    The beach where the stopwatch is started lends itself perfectly to mass starts, with neat lines of 15 bikes and 4-abreast acceleration contests for the cars. After this sprint along the beach, the drivers will tackle one of the longest-ever sandy sections in the history of the Dakar: a total of 100 km, with dunes of all sizes! This special stage is where certain racers will get ahead, especially since the last canyon is a little tricky to find...

    Liaison > 114 km - Special > 330 km

    Mark Samuels said on social media that he had an issue with his cap and heading equipment and missed a waypoint, thus the hour penalty.
