Stage 4: San Salvador de Jujuy – Tupiza (Bolivia)
Liaison: 105 km – Special stage: 416 km – Total: 521 km
A fourth stage that was difficult, with a dune passage at 4,000 meters above sea level in Bolivian soil, but the five RZR of the Xtremeplus Team made it to the bivouac at Tupiza in Bolivia, without facing major problems.
Everyone crossed the sand without any issues, only crew #386, Wan Fujian/Li Wei, had three punctures caused by not inflating their tires after the dunes. At the finish line, Mao Rujin, Leandro Torres, Ravil Maganov and Li Dongshen arrived happy about their day.
The Dakar continues its journey through the Altiplano (a plateau in the Andes Mountain located at 3,500-4,000 meters above sea level) and will arrive to Oruro before the rest day at La Paz, Bolivia´s capital city.
