‘Invisible’ waypoint take drivers for a spin

2015-01-15 00:00

AN “invisible” ninth waypoint on ­Tuesday’s ninth Dakar stage saw riders and drivers milling around in thick ­fesh-fesh dust, some wasting over an hour looking for the signal.

“By the time we reached that point, the ground had been churned up a lot. It is also an area filled with fine fesh-fesh dust, and the crews ahead of us were milling around trying to find the waypoint. As a result we couldn’t see much, and it took us more than an hour to pin down the spot before we could move on,” said Poulter after the stage.
