That said, because of the tragic news today - not only are Wesley's friends and fellow competitors devastated, but the Organisation too is visibly shocked and subdued.

There was a minute's silence at the briefing this evening, followed by the considered decision to run the stage tomorrow without it being timed - more a time for contemplation perhaps, and a fitting tribute - since Wesley was never one to miss a stage if he could possibly help it.

There is of course also an alternative for competitors who wish to simply follow the assistance route to the next bivouac. I have to say, I don't think anyone feels much like actually 'racing' tomorrow.

There is a lovely photo over on the rallymaniacs.nl facebook page (copied below, thank you Marcel) of Wesley doing what he loved most earlier today.
