Only temporary results are known at the moment but Loprais managed 7th, behind a bunch of Iveco and Kamaz trucks occupying the top spot with a magnificent role of local hero Villagra who battled it out with Nikolaev, Nikolaev winning the stage by a whisker.

Dakar Stage 10: Loprais comments

The second long stage…
This year’s second long stage is behind us. It was not perfect, moreover, it was again divided by neutralization zone, which I do not like, but this time it helped us, because we had to change the wheel in its course. Fortunately, we managed everything in time and we could jump into the second part. But again, nothing was easy. We hit a stone and the power steering pump hose burst. We could not turn the wheel again, we had to stop and repair. On top of that, about 100 kilometres before the finish, after a decent jump, oil leaked from the rear shock absorbers, so we really enjoyed the ride. However, we retained the fifth place in the stage, which is under these conditions a decent result. The track was challenging and quite broken and we are pleased that the technology survived. Tomorrow we will start from the fifth place, which is certainly a better position than today. Unfortunately, there is only the tomorrow’s stage, which may allow for something to happen.
11th stage from SAN JUAN to RIO CUARTO in the entire length of 754 km, of which 288 km measured. In the first 50 km we can expect dunes and even further kilometres will be interesting because they will be driven in places of the Argentinean part of the World Championship Rally.

Dakar 2017 Stage 10: Loprais 5th, result Kolomy unknown.

LopraisStage10

A superb stage by Eduard Nikolaev means he has picked up his second stage victory with a lead of 7 minutes over his Kamaz team-mate Dmitry Sotnikov, catapulting him to the top of the general standings for the first time. Gerard de Rooj dropped back, finishing 7th and is now half an hour behind Nikolaev overall.

Dakar 2017 Stage 9 cancelled

no comment Posted by smitkees
A massive landslide caused by thunderstorms happened this morning at 10.30am on the road used to join the bivouac, 40 kilometers north of Jujuy, 160kms away from Salta, hitting the village of Volcan. According to the Argentinian civil security, victims are deplored in the population and considerable damage has been observed.
The organization 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.
A number of larger vehicles will not be able to use that road either.
The day will be devoted to regroup the race caravan in Chilecito to continue the event by giving the start on the 12th of January of stage 10, between CHILECITO and SAN JUAN.A massive landslide caused by thunderstorms forced the cancellation of Wednesday’s ninth stage of the Dakar Rally in Argentina, organizers said.
They said the road to Tuesday’s overnight bivouac had been blocked 40km north of Jujuy. The landslide hit the village of Volcan and caused considerable damage.
“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 … by about 200 km,” the race organizers said in an overnight statement.

The competitors will instead spend Wednesday traveling to Chilecito for Thursday’s 10th stage.

Dakar 2017 Stage 8: Loprais comments

Goodbye, Bolivia…

Today’s shortened stage, the last in Bolivia, is behind us. We will wave to the mountains and I must say that I am not satisfied with today’s result, even though we did not have any technical problems. We did not have enough power. We just could not keep up. The vehicles around were faster. We hope that we were choked mainly by the altitude. Disillusion is also due to the length of the stage, because the constant reduction of sharp kilometres can definitely help us to better overall result.

January 11, 2017 is the day of the 9th stage from SALTA to CHILECITO. This stage should have a total of 977 km, of which the measured section for all categories should have 406 km But so far it is not clear what will happen, because the only access road to Salta is under water and the entire convoy is said to be instructed to return. We will have to wait for the solution.

We believe that this time, despite the difficulties the serving of kilometres will be preserved and the results will be somewhat more favourable for us.
