NEOM, Saudi Arabia: Two-time former motorbike champion Toby Price has withdrawn from the Dakar Rally after the Australian took a severe blow to the head in a crash that left him in a hospital bed on Tuesday.
Price’s crash on stage nine comes on the first anniversary of the death of Portuguese motorcyclist Paulo Goncalves, on last year’s Dakar which was also staged in Saudi Arabia.
Racing largely on dirt tracks and dunes Price had gone into the ninth stage in second place overall, a little over a minute adrift of Chilean leader Jose Ignacio Cornejo Florimo.
