Dakar: Stage 11 Cancelled Due to Weather
Copiapo, Chile (January 14, 2009) – Stage 11 has been cancelled due to heavy fog forecasted along the entire route of today’s route from Copiapo to Fiambala. Below is a statement put out by the A.S.O. earlier this morning:
“The day’s special stage has been cancelled. As the weather forecast announces heavy fog on the whole route of the stage and as the timing of the stage cannot be altered due to the crossing of the Andes and the crossing of the border between Chile and Argentina, the organizers have decided to cancel the portion of stage 11 between Copiapo and Fiambala that should have been against the clock. The participants will be getting to the Fiambala bivouac in liaison starting at 8:00 AM.”
