DESAFIO RUTA 40: WEATHER CANCELS STAGE ONE
Weather intervenes to cancel Stage One of the Dakar Series Rally Desafio Ruta.
KTM's three factory riders Marc Coma of Spain, Chilean Chaleco Lopez and American Kurt Caselli were denied the opportunity to launch their bid for victory in Stage One of the Dakar Series Rally Desafio Ruta 40 in Argentina on Monday after fog caused its cancellation.
The rally, to be run over six stages is also the fourth leg in the FIM World Cross Country Rallies Championship, currently being led by the multi Dakar Rally winner Coma, who has already taken victory in the Abu Dhabi Desert Challenge, the Sealing Cross Country Rally in Qatar and the Sardegna Rally in Italy's Sardinia.
Weather permitting, the second stage will be held on Tuesday.
