The Civic Center of San Carlos de Bariloche was the epicenter of the activities for Sunday after the administrative checks and technical scrutineering the Bivouac located in the Municipal Veldrome of the city.

The race will start today so as to finish the first stage which start and finished in San Carlos de Bariloche. The event will also visit the cities of Zapala, Malargüe and San Juan, where the award-giving ceremony will take place on April 12th.

The weather conditions will be key for this stage, first ones to start will have to go through soft surfaces tracks because of the rain that fell in the región during the whole weekend. The rest will be able to take that track from the first ones as a guide but then they will have to figure out the best choice. Weather conditions will level competitors out and will give a special flavor to the first stage of Desafío Ruta 40 2014.

From 8 in the morning on, competitors will leave the Bivouac to head to the start of the stage. Pablo “Cacha” Rodríguez will be the first one to start, and then Javier Pizzolito and Alberto Ontiveros will follow.

Two minutes after that, Omar Gandara and his co-driver Alejandro Fenoglio will start the race, and then Pablo Maranzana and Eugenio Arrieta will follow

The Organization of Desafío Ruta 40 has decided to modify the Second Stage between Bariloche and Zapala due to impassable roads because of heavy rains that fell on the region during the last days.

It will be on this way that the second stage to be held on Tuesday, April 8th; will have the same itinerary as Stage 1 to be run tomorrow. After the selective sections, the caravan will leave towards the Municipal Sports’ Hall of Zapala, where the second bivouac of Desafío Ruta 40 will be located.
