Stage 5 - january 1st 2012

Liaison : 10 km – ES 4 : 290 km – Liaison : 15 km | Total : 315 km

This fourth special stage will not be so easy: rocky and wavy track, bumps, but difficulties are worth seeing as the mountain landscape is magnificent.
The first 32 kilometres are fast on a quite straight track, lined with cairns and trees. The following 20 kilometres are more twisty and bumpy with very beautiful passes. Then the track becomes very varied, often rocky, with a chott crossing, bumps, some soft sand, big wadis with vegetation, hills, down hills and beautiful valleys. The navigation is however easier, but it is essential not to miss direction changes by staying between cairns… when there are!
