Originally held from Paris to Senegalese capital Dakar, the event was shifted out in 2009 after security concerns forced the cancellation of the 2008 event.
The race will start in the Peruvian capital of Lima before running through Argentina and Bolivia. It will then finish in Argentina on January 20 after covering a distance of 9,000 kilometres over 14 days.
