Stage 7: Layoune - Daklha
Finally a stage with a shorter and easier off road section! The caravan proceeded on the blacktop south towards the city of Dakhla with a special section on flat, wind swept plains short distance from the bivouac. The easy terrain perhaps relaxed the concentration of one of the riders a little too much as he had a high speed crash after hitting a hidden dip at a hight speed. Fortunately the check up at the local hospital showed no injuries other than bruised back. Otherwise not much has changed in the standings.

Stage 8: Daklha - Nouadhibou
A liaison stage to cross the Morocco-Mauritanian border. Thanks to advanced preparation by the organization, the border crossing went extremely smoothly, and everyone got across within an hour. The short drive across the mined no-man's land strip reminded everyone the importance of good way points as car wrecks litter the land scape. The late afternoon in Mauritania was hampered by strong winds and resulting sand storms and everyone is relieved to be in the comfy bivouac now.

Stage 9: Nouadhibou - Nouakchott
After several days of high winds and blinding sandstorms forced us to forgo Atar and instead head to Nouakchott the special followed last year's course. To extend the range of the motorbikes to cover the 500km distance through some very remote coastal regions the rally team set up a refueling station around the half way mark. We timed the beach crossing to coincide with the low tide and everyone got across safely except for the soaked race director sweeping the course. One notable drop out from the race was Mark Hughes, who's engine rebuild engine suffered another breakdown.
