After hours of investigations, spying, and using my full bag of connections and secret tricks, I have mapped out the complete Stage 1 Special. I have it in full Google Earth form, which could be pretty handy for competitors to study for an hour or two, zoomed in to see every turn and every bush. I already started on Stage 2, and guess what, . . . I'll leave it at that! Stage 1: The stage starts in flat farmlands in an area called Rodeo Viejo. This is a lot of VERY fast dirt roads with a couple of wash crossings. If it rains, these washes could present some interesting challenges. Without rain I suspect they will be dry. Later the route curves up into some rugged mountains, reaching around 3800ft (1200m). These mountain roads are very twisty and not so wide, with lots of opportunities for going off the edge. The motos take a bit of a shortcut detour mid-way, but then rejoin the car route. The detour is not shown on this map but it's in some rugged mountain terrain. The stage then goes back down to farm lands, back into the mountains, back down again, finally finishing near San Agustin. Enjoy!
