The Dakar Rally didn’t run today due to a massive landslide near Volcan, Argentina. Where they have been, however, is on some of the most picturesque stages in international rallying. Since there won’t be any stage updates today, let’s enjoy some of the beautiful rally shots from the past few days.

Most of these photos come from the shortened Stage 8 of the rally, which went from Uyuni, Bolivia, to Salta, Argentina, through massive sand dunes and colorful mountains.

The big trucks are the most insane class in the Dakar, but the guys on motorcycles have to be some of the toughest bastards out there.
