Stage 6 - Arequipa > San Juan de Marcona

A great achievement for Snijders in the first long and hard stage after the rest day. Despite his knee injury (torn legiments) he managed to finish on a 73th position overall, ranking 13th in the Male-moto class.

Two way points where to difficult to reach, and in a rio (empty river bedding) Snijders fell once breaking a handle. These he considered minor sett backs, and Marcel will continue the race with 4 more stages to go.
