Holy smokes, how are they going to climb this 400 meter (1250ft) high dune? It comes near the end of Stage 6. There are multiple ridiculous dune climbs and descents in this stage.

that looks steep climb in soft sand from the waypoint to top of the dune and then sharp decent down. It tough day for people in soft sand you also got be carefully not to dig in and roll down in the decent.

Are the liaison stages considerably longer in this years race? 810k seems like a lot of “commuting”!

What A Joke
Well this is the stage that the Textrons were designed for and all 3 are basically like new after a full prep so lets see what they can do today!!

On completion of the first 5 stages that have brought the riders, drivers and crews to Arequipa, there are still 247 vehicles left in the race on the 41st edition of the Dakar (105 bikes, 18 quads, 93 cars, including 24 SxS, and 32 trucks), which is the lowest number of participants left at the mid-way point since 2007 (74%). For the survivors of this demanding route, the bikers have been dominated by young American Ricky Brabec, who is holding the hopes of Honda to bring the domination of KTM on the event to a close. In the car race, on the contrary a trio of experienced drivers, made up of Nasser Al Attiyah, Stéphane Peterhansel and Nani Roma, stand out from the rest, among which can be found Sébastian Loeb, who has won two stages. The stage on which the rally resumes, between Arequipa and San Juan de Marcona, promises to be the theatre of a formidable battle, with the major test of the Tanaka dunes at the beginning. The way back to Lima holds in store another festival of sand.

Looks like there is about 30 Re-Entries:

08:15 A new start
The second half of the rally is getting under way with the debut of the half marathon rule. It is a second chance for the 30-odd car, S×S and truck crews that who had to withdraw from the race during the first five stages and want to get back into the race in a different classification. Things are not getting any easier. On the contrary, at 800 km, today's special is the longest of the Dakar!

The liaison is long for this event due to the fact they have do a larger amount of distance between bivouacs. There is not a larger amount of highway driving in Peru which increase the drive time.

Times seem a little weird at ASS1. I’d wait for another WP before we believe the other Brabec is leading by that much time.

Looks like there is a loop in the correct road, riders are passing twice by wp1, or very near, marking two different times in there. Jan Brabec, not Ricky, looks to have omitted the loop and when directly to wp2 from first pass of wp1

Looks to be a timing error

BENAVIDES OPENS UP A GAP

Kevin Benavides is chasing his third Dakar stage win as he attempts to reduce his deficit in the general classification. The Argentinian made the difference in the 84 km first part of the special, beating teammate Ricky Brabec by 2 minutes. Toby Price (+2′23″) and Matthias Walkner (+3′) remain within striking distance.
