The 267 km stage with a 12 km liason in Pisco, Peru saw 90 per cent of the stage off track. Competitors were subjected to tricky canyons in the first 40 km of the stage, which was followed by a series of dunes. The stage was a challenge to navigate as well, which meant the riders had to be cautious in their approach.
The 2018 Dakar Rally is the 40th edition of the event and the tenth successive year that the event will be held in South America. The event will start in Lima, Peru, on January 6, then run through Argentina and Bolivia, and will finish in Córdoba, Argentina, on January 20 after 14 stages of competition.
The Dakar Rally (or simply "The Dakar"; formerly known as the "Paris–Dakar Rally") is an annual rally raid organised by the Amaury Sport Organisation. Most events since the inception in 1978 were from Paris, France, to Dakar, Senegal, but due to security threats in Mauritania, which led to the cancellation of the 2008 rally, races since 2009 have been held in South America. The race is open to amateur and professional entries, amateurs typically making up about eighty percent of the participants.
The race is an off-road endurance event. The terrain that the competitors traverse is much tougher than that used in conventional rallying, and the vehicles used are true off-road vehicles rather than modified on-road vehicles. Most of the competitive special sections are off-road, crossing dunes, mud, camel grass, rocks, and erg among others. The distances of each stage covered vary from short distances up to 800–900 kilometres (500–560 mi) per day.
Best fan moments of day 1.
