Route: St.Louis – Lac Rose
Country: Senegal Character: competition
Stage 13, the last test of the Rally, started off with a quick sprint down the beach followed by the last surprise of this year’s rally: a control point set atop a large dune in an area known as the Senegalese Sahara. However after almost two weeks in driving in the sand everyone was up to the task. The last 90 km of the stage took place on a wide beach passing through fishing villages with brightly painted pirogues and fishermen unloading the day’s haul and countless children cheering on the competitors. The stage culminated with the moment everyone has been sacrificing so much for: the arrival at the mythical Lac Rose, the dream destination for every off road fan. And for all the hardship the feeling of reaching the shores of Lac Rose is impossible to describe. No words can do it justice, you will have to join us to experience it yourself...
