Stage 8 - january 4th 2012

ES 6 : 425 km – Liaison : 9 km | Total : 434km

Welcome in Mauritania! Beautiful and fascinating country. The competitors will dive into this wonderful sand sea. A big moment for all the desert lovers …

The stage is beautiful and dunes are really there … Variety will be the key word: many off-piste, fast plateau, vegetation, grassy valleys, very spaced out camel grass, dunes crossing and stony sections. Patience will be rewarded!
