The head of the Silk Way Rally Vladimir Chagin addressed the race contestants at the briefing: “This is the most difficult decision that I have had to make in my career. People's health comes first. The brainstorming was going on for 2 days around the clock, we were looking for an opportunity to save every kilometer of the race so that it retained the status of the FIM World Rally-Raid Championship and the FIA World Cup for Cross-Country Rallies. The most optimal decision would be to spend three more days of the race in Altai. Tomorrow there will be a marathon stage ".
