Stage 9 covered some of the most scenic terrain of the rally. While relatively short it included some extremely challenging rocky passages and the vast dunes Mauritania is famous for. The day's winner Sergio Anguiano narrowly edged the race leader Antonio Valero while the WIngs Team continues to dominate the car race. The technical course was well suited to motorbikes and the light Motorauto Almeria UTVs which placed in 7th and 8th place. As of late night the Agentura Říha Land Cruiser is still in the dunes spending the night there.
Stage 10 promises more sand and deeper, taller dunes. We will cross the seemingly endless sea of dunes to Akjoujt and there promises to be a lot of digging along the way. But the weather is holding up, the sand is fluffy and the challenge is there for us to conquer.
