Opening the stage I was pretty nervous but it went pretty good. There were fast tracks at the beginning and then we got into sandy off-piste. A lot of bumps, probably the roughest stage I’ve ever done. I thought they would have caught us a lot quicker but they didn’t come up to us until 100 kilometers in and then we followed Cyril and Loeb from there. We pushed as hard as we could and came away with a third so I feel really good about it. Tomorrow is rest day and the body needs it!

On the past two days, a lot of things happened in the Silk Way Rally and with the sixth stage contested, MINI John Cooper Works Rally pairing Bryce Menzies / Pete Mortensen (both USA) hold third position in the overall standings behind two Peugeots.
Yesterday, in the fifth stage, Menzies secured the very fine third place, thus also climbing up to third in the overall standings. “The opening sections were really fast and it also went pretty good in regards to the navigation,” said the US American. “Later, the navigation got more difficult but we were able to again gain time in the closing section.”

Two-time Dakar Rally truck-class champion Gerard de Rooy will contest the Africa Eco Race over the Dakar Rally in 2018, Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco has announced.
The truck category frontrunner was a vocal critic of the 2017 route, having suggested that Dakar needs to rethink its presence in Bolivia after a number of stages were either cancelled or shortened due to the weather.
Petronas Iveco's main rival Kamaz has campaigned in both events - The Dakar and Africa Eco race - over the past few years, sweeping the two rally-raids in 2017.

The organizer canceled tomorrow’s ninth stage, from Salta to Chilecito - the decision means that 42% (1,400 km) of so far planned special stages (3.300 km) have been called off due to poor weather!
Stage 9 Salta - Chilecito cancelled. A massive landslide caused by thunderstorms has cut the road used to join the bivouac 40km north of Jujuy / 160km from Salta.
Most of the vehicles of the Dakar caravan will be able to reach the bivouac of Salta via an alternative route through San Antonio de los Cobres, extending the distance of the liason by 200km.
A part of the larger vehicles will not be able to use this road!
Tomorrow will be devoted to re-group the race caravan in Chilecito to continue the event with the 10th stage from Chilecito to San Juan.
