2013 Dakar Final Stage Bikes Special Start Delayed Due to Clouds
Another tentative will be made at 9 am local time. The final stage of the 2013 Dakar rally ends in Chile's capital Santiago, and has a 279 km connection split in a 121 km liasion before the 346 km special stage and the final 158km connection.
With a mixture of sand and stones, Stage 14 is a rather technical one and will put both bikes and riders through very rough testing. Overall rankings see Despres in the lead, with Chile's Lopez 8 minutes down, followed by Ruben Faria, 6 minutes adrift from Lopez.
Update: The special stage finally started with an additional 15 minutes delay, but it looks like the last chapter of the 2013 Dakar is in the making.
