Don is out

From www.RallyRaidCanada.com


OMG Don is Hurt
Hit by a truck in the dark. Bike broken in two. No GPS. Stuck out in the dark. People are with him. He can barely talk. Afraid he might have broken his leg. 12 miles from the end of the Special.

Natalie will post as she hears. she is calling Paul Green now.
.



On another note...look how freaking steep the dunes were today

Let's keep our fingers crossed he is okay.

I can't believe his luck...or lack of it!!

If he still somehow finishes the stage that's amazing! How did you find out he was still rolling?

I got it from his shop when it was around. I don't remember seeing them on the RRC site either.

I'll PM you Re Diablo Orange.

Hi Dave,

I'll be down at the show on Saturday I'll stop by your booth for one of your T-Shirts, same as I won for the kid at Orca....


They'll more than have to burn the midnight oil to get Dons bike fixed for tomorrow, I'd be real surprised to see him start the day, but one can only hope...

It looks like Honda is having a tough time of it so far, not like the Baja, I hope things pick up for them and they can at least make it interesting...

Can't wait to see how things play out tomorrow, it's a shame when you can get hours upon hours of coverage on the hockey strike but nothing on Canadian TV to follow one of the biggest motorsport events on the planet...

Go Don!! That would be great if he can get it together. He's not listed as out yet.

Honda does seem to be lagging a bit at the moment. Early going as you know but Despres ain't gonna slow down!

Yes it is a shame! 3minutes of bike coverage a day! At least it's in 360p

Thanks...PM'd ya!

Dave

Unfortunatly it looks like Dons bad luck continues

Quote:
Just had a call from Paul Green … and …unfortunately it is the end of the rally for Don. The ASO medical car has picked Don up. Apparently he is physically ok.

Great vids. Thanks for posting.

Some riders can make racing thru those dunes and rocks seem so fun and even easy...but seeing the ones that struggle really shows the severity of the course. Gotta respect anyone that gets there let alone finishes.

Just amazing
