Portuguese term or phrase: "palcos" (Urgent)
I sincerely hope ther's someone out there to help me this Christmas Eve!

...as dunas foram um dos “palcos” mais pisados ao longo destes dias.....

This Portuguese motorcyclist is referring to some 10 days' training in sand in preparation for the Paris-Dakar Rally.

Maybe 'scenes' as an extended meaning of 'stage'?

Thanks and Merry Christmas!

I didn't find a very satisfactory solution, and used 'backdrop to training' or similar in the end. Ta anyway!
