Bad weather cancels opening stage of Ruta 40

Organisers of the 2013 Desafio Ruta 40 rally in Argentina were forced to cancel today’s opening stage due to bad weather which prevented any flying operations for the event’s helicopters.
 

Team HRC riders, Helder Rodrigues and Javier Pizzolito, completed the initial liaison ride in wet weather this morning for an 0715 start in preparation for today’s scheduled 372km stage from San Salvador de Jujuy to San Miguel de Tucumán.
 

However, as the weather deteriorated, the stage was cancelled and the riders moved to the intended destination via national roads, completing at total of 443km liaison for the day.
 

The first timed kilometers of the rally will be contested tomorrow in a special 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 346.51km and will begin at 0900.
 

Team HRC general manager, Martino Bianchi, commented: “It is a real shame that this bad weather has started now, after we have enjoyed a week of fine weather since we arrived in Argentina. Hopefully the situation will be better for tomorrow’s special stage and we can finally get this rally underway.”
