David Reeve's Zambia Dakar 2013 Challenge
Sadly it appears from what I can glean off the website, Pal Ulavasetter has had a crash in the Qatar rally and broken his femur. He is going in for surgery - our thoughts and best wishes from his Zambian fans. G

That is correct, we had a gearbox problems after 50km, lost first, second and third gear, but he managed to keep up with the wolf pack up front, loosing about 2 minutes at the service point. He continued and called me after 30 minutes. Crashed, broke the femur complete, couldn't walk back to bike and call through Iritrack. So I alarmed everybody, he was picked up by paramedics luckily they were only 8km away. He's supposed to be already in hospital in Doha, I am on my way there now. Than back, pick up the bike and organize shipment back to Europe. He should be safe, but will see how complicated the fracture
Vladimir - mechanic of Ullevålseter.

Quick Google translate, from Dagbladet (main norw. paper)

Spokesperson Haakon A. Bjercke talked to 43-year-old little before. 12, and then lay north man hospitalized in Doha. About two hours before, at. 10, it went wrong in the saddle.

Ullevålseter crashed and suffered multiple fractures. Probably he operated for hip fracture later in the day.

- I spoke with Pål Anders now, he's pretty drugged on morphine. He told the gearbox broke and that he could only run in the fourth and fifthgir, Bjercke says to Dagbladet.

Hit a rock
He says Ullevålseter due to trans trouble had to keep a great pace to continue, more than 90 km / h, which led to higher risk out on stage.

- Then he hit a rock and flew straight into the air. He broke the tip of the thumb and leg right off. He hopes the femur fracture is uncomplicated, but so far he has not received a reply. He saw that his thigh was split in two, it was only just skin and tendons that held it together, says press spokesman.

- How is your mood?

- He's depressed, he's so conscientious. He is sorry for sponsors, he was included in these rallies to get in shape for the Dakar Rally. The main part of this was preparation for winter. Pål Anders was sad, but also tipsy. There is not anything cool like that happens once.

- Is next year's Dakar foreclosed now?

- We do not know, it's a clean break may be six to 12 weeks until it has healed. But it depends if they get plastered there properly. He has not given up the Dakar, it is still the goal. There are eight months. The problem is run, how much exercise he gets. He was started now.

Summer
The consolation for Ullevålseter is that he originally was going to take the summer by Qatari rally which ends tomorrow.

- He is extremely good physical shape now, who destroyed when he is bedridden. Then disappear muscles, but it helps that he's in good shape. He is 43 years old and better trained than most elite sport athletes at 30

- Was it a dramatic rescue?

- Pål Anders was determined in a Toyota Land Cruiser, and drove as far as they could before the helicopter arrived. From a camp at the target, he was taken to the hospital by helicopter. I would guess that the accident occurred at. 10 today.

On reaching the hospital rally veteran is confident that he will get good care.

- He said the hospital looks terrific out, he is not stressed. He is confident, but so far he has not been joined by team. They have to take care of bikes and equipment. Pål Anders was also concerned that they take their passports, and little things like that, says Bjercke.

Hope Pau heals fast and recovers fully in good time.

Say what you want about quinn but I am proud of the guy and the way he has been riding after his injury. And its been cool to watch his updates on the intrawebs from this rally.

PAL is such a fantastic warrior. The guy is like the Energizer Bunny and I'm sure he will heal and keep on going. It's always comforting to see him running near the front of the pack year after year and still doing so into his 40s.

Best wishes to PAL for a smooth recovery and continued off road adventures.

Coma wins by 4 seconds. Coma and Goncalves finish with Goncalves +0'00" which mean he made up his 2' start deficit but didn't pull out the additional 5 seconds needed for first.

So speedy caught Coma but couldn't outpace him to the line - must have been some race towards the end !

First I recall a stage finish tied up on times like that.

One fact has emerged from this and that must be that the two bikes have the same top end speed ?
