The gateway to the Empty Quarter provides the backdrop to this stage —pure, unadulterated desert. Competitors will get a hefty serving of dunes, albeit spread far and wide and in small chains. The special intersperses technical sections with faster parts. This high-stakes loop will give the fastest competitors their first opportunity to make a real difference.

I think this is the stage where we'll get a much better representation of who the top 20 are, now that those that started lower won't have to pass as many cars

Easy day for the crews today...no teardown/drive/setup.

Did they have a separate section just for bikes. That video of the bikes going through the rocks looks like a single track trail and not big enough for cars and trucks.
