Comunicato Stampa disponibile solo in lingua originale

The participants of the #dakar Rally 2017 were spared another early-rise this morning and got to put their feet up in La Paz, Bolivia.

Riders finally get a well-deserved rest day in La Paz, Bolivia and the chance to recharge the batteries as well as making preparations for the decisive coming week at the #dakar. There were sessions with the physiotherapist too as the competitors look to keep their bodies in tiptop shape. Some just took the chance to hang out and relax. The rest of the crew, meanwhile, have spent the day meticulously going over preparations as the team embarks on the final crucial week.

The mechanics were today able to check over the #honda CRF450 RALLY with greater calm than usual. The machine has shown great resilience and performance over the first week of competition. The team and bike now look poised to attack over the next few stages which kick off with the marathon stage tomorrow. As usual, riders will not be allowed to receive any external mechanical assistance from the close of tomorrow’s stage in Uyuni to the following day.
