Pharaons Rally 2007 Special-Newssection (FIM Cross Country Worldcup)

Pharaons Rally: Description of the 6th stage Sitra - Baharija.

The stage begins by crossing the Sitra flats again bound directly for the dunes, alternating black valleys and fesh fesh. After a few miles dunes reappear with some soft zones until CP1, at kilometre 50. Then some plateaus full of stones until they change direction to follow the dunes until kilometre 94. This will be the finishing point for the large dunes in this edition of the rally, but the riders will not have said farewell to the sand. After CP2, at kilometre 99, there is a very fast plateau until a flat black zone that takes them to CP3, at kilometre 69.

Afterwards the track becomes twistier and slower and slower. Various rocky valleys come before the gardens close to the oasis of Bahariya where the riders will find a fast track in the bed of a sandy wadi. This is a fast track through a built up zone so they will have to proceed with caution, they then arrive at an authentic maze of samall tracks among vegetation. Finally a slow zone before reaching a fast track, taking the same steps as on the first stage.
