|Desafio Ruta 40: Weather conditions forced to cancel the first stage.|
The first stage of 2013 "Desafío Ruta 4"0 between San Salvador de Jujuy and San Miguel de Tucumán in Argentina was cancelled because weather conditions prevented the safety helicopter from flying the competition zone. This forced the Organization of the Race to call off the first day stage.
Once the decision was known, competition vehicles left in a caravan on the National Road N°9 towards the hippodrome in the city of San Miguel de Tucuman. This was the chosen place for the final bivouac of the first day.
This way, the first timed kilometers of the race will be disputed tomorrow (tuesday) in a stage that will link San Miguel de Tucumán with San Fernando del valle de Catamarca. The stage will count on only one selective section of 346,51 kilometers and will start from 9 o’clock.
