Dakar organisers have modified yet another stage of the rally after torrential rain fell on the scheduled route from La Rioja to Cordoba in Argentina.
As a result of the changes, in today's 13th special the competitors will drive in liaison on the road for 364km to get to the scheduled fourth control point, where the start will now take place.
The special will thus be shortened to 220km instead of the 545 originally scheduled.
