Could be referring to the way points; Dakar site has them numbered 1-2-3-6-7-4-5-8 ??

For some strange reason that only the French site manager knows, my way point order just correctly re-arranged itself. For a minute I thought they were doing a "loop" on the course ;)

Have any of you looked at the profile of the special? A climb to 3378m and then a decent to 1000m
Keep in mind there is a neurtralisation (non-racing) section in the middle of this stage. Part of the major drop is in that paved section. See my Google Earth track in that other thread for a great view of the whole stage, plus photos along the way, like this:
