Stage 9 – cancelled

Organizators of Rally Dakar 2017 must to cancelled another stage:
“We offered its sanitary facilities to reinforce the local safety support on site. As the road is cut off, most of the vehicles, competitors, assistance and logistics from the Dakar caravan were diverted on an alternative route through San Antonio de los Cobres, extending the distance of the liaison by about 200 km. They will not be able to reach the Salta bivouac in time to start the race.”

As a result, today will be used to regroup the rally in Chilecito with a view to continuing the race on Thursday, 12 January, with stage 10 from Chilecito to San Juan.
