Fourth Dakar stage shortened

The fourth stage of the this year's Dakar rally has been shortened in order to allow competitors to have more time to rest.

A big number of competitors did not manage to return to the bivouac by night fall yesterday and, having to face the passage of the Andes today, the organisers have decided to delay the start of the stage by 1.5 hours.

The stage will now finish at the third control point and will thus be reduced by 40 kilometres.

The 'public zone' planned at km 184,91 has also been removed.
