The Organizers of the Dakar have acknowledged the final decision of the Peruvian authorities to cancel the Inca Desafío, which was scheduled to be held this coming 11 to 13 September, as well as the stages of the 2016 Dakar that were presented last April during a joint press conference.

Due to forecasts concerning the El Nino weather phenomenon, which is expected to be extremely violent this year, the Peruvian government has decided to make this issue a national priority by ensuring that all state services are able to mobilize if necessary to help the population that could be affected.

While hoping that the people of Peru will not have to face these predicted disasters, the entire Dakar organizing team is already hard at work to create an alternative route with optimal sporting and safety conditions both in Argentina and Bolivia.

The Dakar organizing team is at the disposal of all the competitors who have already entered to provide all relative information concerning these route changes in a timely manner.

The final route of the 2016 Dakar will be announced in the second half of September.
