Today's stage was shortened due to the late arrival of several teams yesterday, and a long stage awaiting tomorrow. The stage from Merzouga to Mhamid contained a lot of rocks, sand and even a fair amount of fez, fez. Todays special was around 200km long, and proved to be quite fast. The fastest racers finished it in under two and a half hours. Again, today several teams had technical challenges and a few received assistance from the Org. In the bivouac right now there is a hectic activity, quite a few teams are busy fixing and preparing for a long stage tomorrow. The teams are starting to find their limits and settling into a good rhythm. Tomorrows update will be from Icht.
