The day begins with Dominique Serra's "Bonjour, il est 5 heures!" wakeup call, a cherished tradition that is sure to mark the new Gazelles!

Then the morning routine of a Gazelle begins: packing up tents and sleeping bags, collecting the vehicle, loading and lining up in the correct starting line. The teams eat breakfast either before or during the briefing for the day's leg… Once the briefing is over, it's time to head for the starting line.

Today the real fun begins : every extra kilometre driven over the crow-flies distance will be penalized. Teams have XNUMX checkpoints to find across the great plains of Hassi Beraber . The Amada du Guir plateau on one side and the imposing Erg Chebbi dunes on the other define ​​the day's playing field.

The terrain is relatively easy for this first leg, with empty open plains offering good visibility of distant features. Some hilly areas will spice up the leg for teams looking to follow the straight line at all costs.
