TAGOUNITE > ASSA

Stage 3 - december 31st  2015

 

STAGE 3 : 558 km

 LIAISON : TAGOUNITE / OULED DRISS : 15 km

 SPECIAL STAGE : OULED DRISS / ICHT : 451 km

 LIAISON : ICHT / ASSA : 92 km

 

The start of the third stage is set on the arrival of the day before. From the beginning of the course, rather technical little dunes will lead participants towards the Oued Draa. The descent into the Oued, as well as getting out of it will be rather complicated. Also, going through the bed of the dry river will be uncomfortable because the track looks like a poorly paved road. Out of the Oued, competitors will find a different Lake Iriki this time, which will be an opportunity to race properly as the usual overlay has changed into a field of small dunes. The Erg Chegaga will be the 100% sand part of the stage. Care should be taken to the tire pressures in order to not lose too much time. Then, the navigation will be easy until the end of the stage since the vehicles will have a great track lined with large cairns. A still very tiresome stage for the competitors, caused by changes of rhythm due to constant irregular coating of the track. The machines and men should be axhausted after arriving at Icht. There will still remain just over 90 km to reach the bivouac at night to celebrate New Year's Eve with champagne and foie gras.
