NBC Sports will present daily coverage of the 2023 Dakar Rally on Peacock starting Jan. 1 at 6:30 p.m. ET.

The endurance race classic will be contested over 14 stages through Sunday, Jan. 15, and highlights, interviews and features will be available on Peacock and NBC Sports digital platforms.

There are more than 550 entrants in the 45th running of the event, which will be contested in the desert, canyons, dunes and mountains of Saudi Arabia for the fourth consecutive year.
