Act I: Finding the right tempo

Speaking a smooth entry would minimize the first three stages of the 2010 Dakar. The days will be long and not only in road section. On already very demanding specials, the most skilful competitors will find an opportunity to build on a position from which they will be able to capitalize. The hard soil will be favourable to technical exploits for its experts in trajectories. They will however have to rapidly switch talents to take on the first little dunes of white sand that they will meet close to Fiambala.

Act II: The dunes of Atacama!

Those who have already visited the Paso San Francisco in 2009 will this time go there using the opposite direction. The road heading there, known as one of the most beautiful in the world will serve as a break before taking on a detailed exploration of the Atacama Desert. The driest part of the world that the competitors will this time discover all the way to the city of Iquique, is the kingdom of dune crossings. During five stages, cut by a rest day at Antofagasta, the riders and crews will head to the north of Chile where off-road mileage will be considerable. It will be without doubt the toughest part of the rally, with reduced road sections: the stop watch will never stop.

Act III: The road of contrast

A change of landscape will occur every day from then on. While there is only one word to talk about sand, all types of soil will, on the other hand, be experienced on the return trip to Buenos Aires, from dunes to flat portions as well as sandy paths that go up the hills of the Mendoza Province. Added to the terrain, it is also visually that the contrasts will be stunning for the competitors as they leave the contours of the Andes Cordillera. On this last part, two stages are long and demanding enough to provoke significant gaps. At a time when bodies and machines will be tiring which should have an impact, the final positions will not be set.

L'Argentine

縦に長いばかりでなく、国土の幅も広いアルゼンチンは気候、景色、生活様式と地域によって様々、とりわけバラエティに富んだ風景明媚な国土は競技者にとっても大きな魅力だ。次大会でアルゼンチン内のコースは約3,500km。様々な顔の国土と違い、アルゼンチン人のモータースポーツへの情熱は全国一色、次回も熱いファンがコースサイドを埋め尽くすに違いない。

昨年は国民の期待を背負ったオーランド・テラノヴァ(BMX X3)がスタート早々リタイアしてしまう残念な結果だった。しかし、クワッドのマルコス・パトロネリが部門2位という快挙を果たした。

le Chili

片方の国境は大西洋に面し、もう一方の国境はアンデスの山という縦に細長く広がる国土で、国の長さでは世界一。北端から南端まで4,300km、海岸線の長さは5,400kmもある。国土の幅でいえば最大349km、一番狭い所で15km足らず。

地球上でもっとも乾燥しているといわれるアタカマ砂漠、コルディエール山脈など、昨年、競技者らは少しだけ体験した。次大会ではチリでのステージが7つ、そのうち5つがアタカマ砂漠で奥深く入り込む、大会の山場となりそうだ。2009年大会ではミシェル・バチェレ大統領が自らヴァルパライソのビバーク地を見学に来てくれた。
