This 40th edition of the largest rally raid competition in the world is being held in Latin America for the tenth time, and the Bolivian route is expected to be one of the most demanding stages of the competition, due to long journeys in desert areas and large salt flats, as well as well as to the height and extreme temperatures of the territory.
