KTM Racing News: Cancellation of Dakar Stage 6

Dakar 2012: Bad weather causes cancellation of Stage Six

Organizers have been forced to cancel Friday’s Stage Six of the Dakar 2012 because of bad weather conditions that made it unsafe for competitors to cross the Andes Cordillera at the highest point of this year’s edition.

Chilean authorities closed the Paso de San Francisco, situated at 4700 m above sea level overnight because of snow and rain.

This, together with the fact that the course has been generally hit by rain and snow mean that it is not possible to guarantee the safety of competitors and support personnel has resulted in the cancelation. Organizers instead will organize a convoy for all vehicles, which after the border crossing will follow the main road to Copiapo, Chile for the one rest day on Saturday.

The results at the end of Stage Five (see below) now represent the standings at the half way mark of the 33rd edition.
