The 2014 Dakar Rally will begin Jan 5 in Rosario, the Argentinean city where football star Lionel Messi was born, and will end Jan 18 in Valparaiso, Chile, organisers announced in Paris.

But the real novelty of next year's rally is that part of the route will take competitors into Bolivia, making it the 28th country to host the legendary off-road endurance race, reports Xinhua.
