Paulo Gonçalves critica organização do Dakar



O motard português Paulo Gonçalves, campeão do mundo de todo-o-terreno, criticou este sábado a organização do rali Dakar, do qual desistiu, por sujeitar os pilotos a condições extremas.Vários pilotos tiveram alucinações devido ao calor.
"Em dia de descanso na mais dura prova de motores, do Mundo, é impossível desviar-se as atenções da fatídica quinta etapa. O calor atingiu limites impensáveis (47ºC) e deixou marcas", começou por dizer Paulo Gonçalves, recordando a morte do belga Eric Palante, que se suspeita ter sido causada pelo calor extremo e desidratação.
De acordo com o motard português, ao contrário de Palante, outros pilotos pediram ajuda à organização, sendo resgatados de helicóptero, "quase a desfalecer, com as elevadas temperaturas".
"Mas, depois da tragédia, chegam os mais insólitos relatos. É que vários pilotos tiveram alucinações", contou Gonçalves.
Segundo o campeão do mundo de todo-o-terreno, alguns, depois de emitirem o alerta, protegeram-se do calor com as roupas e aguardaram, enquanto outros, quando foram alcançados por equipas da organização do Dakar, "falavam e cumprimentavam pessoas do público... imaginárias", revela a agência Lusa.
"O caso mais estranho foi de um piloto, que a organização não revela o nome, que correu cerca de 500 metros. Quando foi 'resgatado' disse que estava a fugir de extraterrestres, que o vinham a perseguir", relatou.

Can someone translate that?

I am on my phone so I won't do full text. Short summary 47c was placing the riders in danger and extreme risk of heat exhaustion. Some riders were having hallucinations, etc.

To top it off many of the pilots are coming from the Northern hemisphere in full winter and are not acclimated to the hot temps.
