El espíritu de la competencia es que setrata de un evento nómade desde su primera edición, cada año cambiaremos la filosofía del recorrido. Gustamos mucho de la idea de volver al Perú y descubrir nuevos países como Ecuador y Colombia”, precisó."

I don't think it's much different than what Lavigne has been stating for some time, that the route and the countries involved will vary from year to year. Peru being out does not necessarily sign the death knell for all future years. I like that approach, it keeps the local organizers on their toes a bit and keeps them from becoming complacent by assuming that they are irreplaceable. Perhaps some time in the future it could be a full loop around the whole of South America.
