A dirt track portion of the stage, the final 26km between Sabou and Koudougou, proved to be crucial to the race's outcome. Belgian's Guy Smet made the best of a section that reminded racers of other rough courses like Paris-Roubaix.

After 20km in the lead, with Mohammed Er Ragragui (Morocco), Smet took command of the break away group and stayed clear of the pack on the dirt track. He took advantage of his companion's puncture in the closing moments to take a solo victory.

Smet's lead wasn't enough to take over from GC leader Mouhssine Lahsaini (Morocco) even though he suffered three flats during the stage. Lahsaini's final flat came just three kilometers from the end, so he was given the same time as the main pack. The rule saved him from having to give up the yellow jersey.

The riders started off at a fast pace as they left Boromo, as they were eager to get to the dirt track to battle it out. By kilometer 11, a first group had broken away including Boukaré Kagambega (Burkina Faso), Abdellatif Karraz (Mar), Mahamadi Nikiema (Burkina Faso), Jeremy Burton (Belgium), Alexandre Brandt (Alsace), Gerben Nijmeijer (Netherlands) and Olivier Nari (Essonne). They were caught five kilometers later.

The next duo to go was Er Ragragui and Smet, who went for the intermediate sprint at Tita (km 53) with a 1'20" advantage while the Moroccan remained just on the wheel of his partner. The pace established by the Belgian rider allowed the duo to increase their lead over the pack and stay clear of a three-man counter attacking group including Saidou Tall (Burkina Faso), Ousmane Compaoré (Sofitex) and Mongonlon Touré (Ivory Coast). After 75 kilometres of racing, the pack remained 3'50" behind the leading men.

At the beginning of the dirt section, the two break riders had a lead of 3'40". Er Ragragui, who was starting to become impatient, tried several attacks. But each time he was caught by Smet. Behind, the nightmare started, after nearly 20 punctures in the first two kilometres, the pack started losing riders. Among the unlucky was Roel Egelmeers (Netherlands), second overall and forced to manage a huge effort to catch up with his rivals. Meanwhile, it was Lahsani's turn to puncture and then jump on the bike of team-mate Abdelati Saadoune to make up his deficit.

The long, red, dusty track continued troubling the riders – this time with a crash involving 15 racers including Verbraeken, who lost his place among the top five overall. Ten kilometres away from the finish and despite not working well together, Smet and Er Ragragui remained together. With a 1'35" lead over Lahsaini, the Belgian was then virtually the new event leader.

With four kilometres to go and after several attempts to take off, it was Er Ragragui's turn to face a tough fate. He was forced to leave Smet to fly off to stage victory and an attempt at the overall standing. The move could have been fatal for Lahsaini who suffered a puncture, except he was lucky enough to be within the final three kilomters. He was indeed given the same time as the pack that crossed the line 41" after Smet.
