2017 Dakar 560x280The 38th running of the Dakar Rally concluded on Saturday after touring South America for the ninth successive year. The event started in Asunción, Paraguay on January 2, then ran through Bolivia and Argentina, before returning to Buenos Aires on January 14 after 12 stages and 5,457 miles of competition. Competitors and support crews come from around the world to challenge their mechanical, driving, and orienteering skills.
