Thanks for those, Scott.

Cool to view, and maybe useful the next time I head to Argentina.

It gave a whole new perspective to the Dakar. I think you had better tell Obama you have more important stuff to do in the next couple of weeks.

HogWild, Thanks for your hard work. Very cool.
I was looking forward to stage 4 though.
Spent a bit of time in that area in 2007, and wanted to know the route.
Here's a pic of us camping near Calama at about 4200m, friggin cold and desolate...



That flat looking gravel is weird stuff...At altitude,It gets sort of layered by the wind, and ends up like gravel fesh fesh.
Very hard to ride on/in.
would love to see the tracks of 100 or so bikes across it
Down into the Atacama tomorrow, hard to ride in that sand too

Sorry, I'm back at work, so no time to do stage 4. Just go up the highway, then turn left.

Map just came up on Dakar site.
They will be crossing the Arg/Chle border by Paso de Jama.
It is an Awesome road, But its PAVED...
There are so many better roads to go over the Andes around there, but I guess they can't do much racing and a border crossing in one day.
I coasted 14kms Down the Paso de Jama with the bike shut off once...great fun.
They will also be so near the Bolivian border too.
It would be fantastic if they could race up to the Salar de Uyuni.
I would love to see the trucks, and Robby Gordons hummer run over the salt...

What are you doing after work? I was getting hooked on your MI6 info.

MI6 ?, I’m only up to MI3! No, actually, I would do it if all it took was a couple hours after work. It's was a great challenge to see if it was possible, especially without the roadbook. But it's like a 12 hour per stage process. And from this thread, it looks like only a dozen or so people here actually used it. Worse still, I got no feedback, good or bad, from competitors in Argentina receiving it. So it seems somewhat pointless to continue.

To make it truly helpful for a competitor, I would need to step it up several notches. If that happened, this subject would become very quiet! For now, it's more like an intriguing toy which I had fun developing and sharing.

I (and I am sure many others) appreciate you sharing. I really got a kick out of the maps and info you post!!!
THANK YOU!

Question

Well, once again unabashedly displaying my ignorance and lack of technical savvy, I had no idea what to do with them. The pics were awesome and the added info on the maps was appreciated but I had/have no clue how to use them to follow the rally.

Thanks for those maps Scott! I spent most of last night zoomed in on them via GE playing armchair rally competitor :)

My wife and I will be riding down in Argentina in a couple of years... I plan to incorporate part of the Dakar route into our trip... some of those roads look incredible (especially that scenic bit just to the west of Chicoana).

Speaking of Dakar routes, is there any way to obtain the full GPS track of the rally after the event?
