|Stage 7 - Profile for Bikes / Quads, as well as Cars / Trucks|
The highlight of the day, is the long running in length of 803 kms for Bikes & Quads, while a shorter 751 kms for Cars & Trucks. Day's action is set on a higher altitudes, which means thinner air pressure and lack of oxygen, both for humans and machines alike. The trucker's did have an advantage, where they were able to haul oxygen cylinders and masks for the onboard crew, but it was all-natural for the bike/quad riders. The stage is almost flat, with some climbs and a steeper descent near towards end of the stage.
