Question

If anyone can translate this better:

Lors de la quatrième étape du Rallye dès Pharaons qui se déroule actuellement en Egypte, le pilote moto Richard Sainct a fait une lourde chute au guidon de sa KTM.

Le pilote n'a malheureusement pas survécu ê ce grave accident. Victime d'une première chute dans le courant de la matinée, Richard était reparti ê l'attaque avant de chuter ê nouveau plus loin dans la spéciale.

L'équipe KTM, au sein de laquelle évoluait Richard Sainct, a décidé de se retirer du rallye.


My french sucks, but it looks to me that he survived a first crash and later on the course suffered another crash in the Special. KTM pulled out of the race altogether after the incident.]

SAD DEATH OF RICHARD SAINCT


29.09.2004

KTM regrets to announce the death of 3 times Rally Dakar Winner Richard Sainct.

Richard crashed to his death today while competing in the “Rallye des Pharaons” in Egypt.

Medical services attended the scene of Richard´s accident promptly but were unable to save him.

KTM will now withdraw all factory riders from the rest of the Rally in respect of Richard´s memory.

Our thoughts are with Richard´s family and children.
Just found this on KTM's English version of it's German site.

Fatal accident for Richard Sainct

Tragedy at the Pharaons Rallye [29/09/04 - 16:21]

Moto rider Richard Sainct lost control of his KTM bike during the fourth leg of the Pharaons Rallye in Egypt.

Unfortunately, the rider didn't survive following this violent accident. Sainct had another fall earlier in the morning but went back up and continued to attack until he fell again a little bit later in the stage.

Sainct was competing for team KTM. The squad decided to withdraw from the race out of respect for their rider.

From the BBC Web site:

Three-time Paris-Dakar rally winner Richard Sainct has died in a crash during the Pharaohs Rally in Egypt.
The French motorcyclist was involved in two crashes on Wednesday's fourth stage and the second accident proved fatal, according to media reports.

A spokesman for the French motorcycle federation said: "I can confirm only that Richard died. We don't have any more details."

The 34-year-old Sainct won the Paris-Dakar in 1999, 2000 and 2003.

His KTM team withdrew from the Pharaohs Rally following his death.

A statement from the team said: "KTM regrets to announce the death of three-time Paris-Dakar winner Richard Sainct. Our thoughts are with Richard's family."

Twice as bright, half as long. He lived twelve of my lifetimes in his 34 years. Indeed a Rallye legend has been stolen from us.

Bummer!
