Stage 11 of the Dakar Rally 2022, which concluded on 13 January, featured some of the most difficult navigational challenges so far. It was a 500km long loop around Bisha, with a timed special of 345km. The stage, which started with sandy tracks inside wadis and winding canyons, made navigation difficult due to the innumerable tracks and crossings within plateaus.

The teams will now participate in the last and final challenge from Dakar 2022 – a 679km ride from Bisha to Jeddah, with a special section of 163km. The last stage of the rally will end at the new Formula 1 circuit in Jeddah.
