Change for Stage 7

The planning of the Personal Dakar Argentina Chile has been designed from tough to tougher; next week will be full of difficulties for the rally raid contenders. After two very hard stages that forced a significant amount of contenders to only reach the bivouac during the rest day in Arica, the rally raid organizers have decided to start the second week of race by removing the second part of the 7th special stage between Arica and Antofagasta.So, after a 272.68 km special stage, the rally raid contenders will drive in liaison up to the bivouac.Although the 7th stage will remain really difficult, the adjustment - made possible by the way the rally raid has been designed with two special stages on certain days - will allow contenders to recover and get into the pace of an intense second week of race.
