Dakar Update – Despres Wins
Stage 13 – Marc Coma suffered head injuries after losing his way and hitting a tree stump 57kms into the special. He has been evacuated to Dakar for further tests but appears to be OK. Cyril Despres now inherits the lead in the world's toughest race.
Despres expressed concern for Coma after taking the stage win and is clearly aware of the risks riders take in this race.
American KTM rider, Chris Blais came in 2nd after a heavy crash early in the stage.
So, the top 12 is evolving again with a couple of Yamaha 450s and Honda 450s mixing it up with 8 KTMs.
