Dakar Stage 5: Copiapo - Antofagasta
668 km are on the menu of stage 5, of which 483 km against the clock, i.e. the second longest special stage of this 32nd edition of the Dakar. On the agenda are the foothills of the Atacama Desert that will offer contenders a varied route alternating between fast sections and boulder sections with e.g. the crossing of two very "rocky" off-road sections and the discovery of the Chilean fesh-fesh - a particularly soft terrain that feels almost like flour. Riders and drivers are in for a long day and their main aim will be to spare themselves and their machines in this first "truly long" endurance-focused special stage of the 32nd Dakar.
