Per the A.S.O., the officials for the 2004 Telefonica Dakar have modified the rally route for stages 10 and 11 originally set to take place on Saturday, January 10 and Sunday, January 11.

Statement:

Modification of the rally route

For security reasons concerning the rally and the competitors, the organisation feels it is necessary to modify the 10th and 11th stages between Nema and Mopti and between Mopti and Bobo Dioulasso.

Both stages have been cancelled and replaced by a liaison all the way to Bamako and then to Bobo Dioulasso.

The liaison to Bamako will be free for all vehicles except for the bikers who will be flying there by plane. For the liaison to Bobo Dioulasso, all competitors will have a free liaison.

This decision has been taken in accordance with the Mali and French authorities.

The rally will therefore stop on Saturday the 10th of January in Bamako and will head to Bobo Dioulasso on Sunday the 11th. A rest day will be staged there as planned.
