Francisco Chaleco Lopez 01

Francisco “Chaleco” López will miss the Atacama Rally to be held next week in the north of Chile. López will sit out due to a knee injury. The chilean last raced in the Morocco Rally, finishing seventh. “Dr. Fernando Radice advised me not compete next week, because the right knee is not right, it bothers me a lot. For a while I’ve been training with pain” said López. There’s big speculation in chilean press that this might mean that López will also sit out from the 2015 Dakar Rally, but this hasn’t been confirmed.

The Atacama Rally will have Marc Coma and Joan Barreda Bort as main stars in motorbikes.
