From Jan Sand last night:

"It will be rocky they said, there will be sand they said..... But there was fun in the sun on the stage 4!!! Everybody taking it slow today at the Amageza with excellent times and enough time to rest and prep for Marathon stage tomorrow!!!!"

From the Roberts Racing Ralley team:

"Cloudless skies and a promise of sand, rocks and no clouds got the team off to the usual 6am start.
 Everyone was expecting a tough stage, but somehow the leaders managed some excellent times. We could only get photos from one spot, but it still shows the contrasting beauty of the area!"

I just heard from the horse's mouth, as I have two friends racing the Amageza, that the organizing is top notch.  Roadbook and all navigation is brilliant, all previous problems addressed and corrected.  Just look at the results, first 10 riders 1 hour apart.  Yesterdays top 10 finishers 13mins apart!  That speaks volumes!

Well done to all!

I notice the field is spreading quickly this morning.  And it looks fast!

In terms of money or guts?

Lots. About the price of a very nice KLR if you do it on the cheap
