No Dakar this Year


For the first time in 30 years, the Dakar Rally has been cancelled because of security issues.

"Direct threats against the race issued by terrorist groups" was given for the reason by an official with ASO, which sponsors the race.

This comes after the 4 French people that were murdered in the country of Mauritania around Christmas time. Those murders were linked to al-Qaeda.
