Very sad indeed.
A hard way for us up north who have been waiting for a bit of heat to get the bikes out to start the season!

Thanks for giving us a connection to the rally, Jenny. The news of Wes is sad, may he race in peace.
Glad there is a reporter on location to share real news, not gossip. Again, thank you very much, Jenny!

I Have a momentary connection this morning and want to pass along the thoughts of everyone on the race for what a great character Wes was. He and I shared a laugh after the dune stage about crashing over the bars on uphills when a soft patch revealed itself.

No times taken today in memory of Wes. Well do our best to enjoy it for the same reason.

Godspeed, Wes.

via Alessio Corradini's FB:

Today nothing race, yesterday died a British rider. Wesley Beane.
He wanted to win at all costs this year and took risks overtaking cars and motorbikes in the dust. The incident occurred at high speed and there was nothing to do. Those who lent aid reported that he died without regaining consciousness in ten minutes. Wesley in the last edition had distinct winning some stages.


And an idea of yesterday at the Boiler pass:

Do know that leader Rob Smits (son of former MX GP competitor Mark Smit) didn't ride any roadbook till 2 months ago. Together with his dad he did some roadbook practice trails in the Dutch farm lands and now 2 months later he is doing great in his first ever rally.
