For this edition, special stage number zero counts just 28 km, but that's enough to open the games of this 46th edition.
There was no shortage of sand, rock and fast tracks.
Ladies and gentlemen, the Dakar has begun.
Andrea Schiumarini and Andrea Succi aboard the Century CR6 find the right approach to start their Dakar 2024.
28 km of the route for the first day of the race is certainly a few, but it did not lack the characteristics of a real special test.
The landscape of AlUla is perfect to give the Dakar riders a first taste of the race with sand, present on much of the course, stones and fast tracks.

"It's hard to recount today's day," declares Schiumarini, given the few kilometers. "Tomorrow will definitely be a more intense and sportier day with over 400 kilometers of special stage."

In fact, stage number 1 tomorrow Saturday, Jan. 6, will start again from AlUla to arrive in AL HENAKIYAH with a transfer of about 120 km. The positions of today's prologue defined the starting order for tomorrow for all vehicles.
