Whilst it was an easier stage with only a short 187km special, the African continent still threw up some serious challenges. “The 280km liaison after today’s special stage from Mauritania to Senegal was extremely hard, we were in a sandstorm with shocking wind and horrendous tracks.”

Stage 10 proved to be another very tough day for competitors and a mixed bag of results for the Coca-Cola Energy/Nomadas Adventure riders. After several very bad crashes rally organisers stopped the stage at CP2 and results were taken from CP1.
