The Dakar race headed north with a special stage between Rosario – Villa Carlos Paz, but the heavy rains that hit the area last night and this morning didn’t allow safety helicopters to take off to secure all competitors, which caused the organizer to cancel the stage. The Xtremeplus team joined the bivouac with some frustration and no race. Tomorrow will be a new day and the stage will take competitors to Rio Hondo.
