From http://www.cyclenews.com:

"A crash early in today's third stage of the Rally of Morocco has knocked Marc Coma out of the race, the Spaniard suffering a dislocated left shoulder  :o that has forced him to withdraw and fly back to Spain for treatment.
Coma crashed on the 221-mile stage between Erfoud and Zagora and was taken to hospital in Errachidia. He will return to Spain tomorrow, according to his Red Bull KTM team. Coma was second in the overall standings after the first two stages of the event.
Honda's Helder Rodrigues, who was riding behind Coma at the time of the crash, stopped and assisted his injured rival  :thumleft: until Coma's teammate Joan Pedrero arrived on the scene.
Once Coma was airlifted from the scene, Pedrero was able to continue his race, though he would lose more time due to a navigational error.
Todays' stage was won by Paulo Goncalves over Rodrigues with Chaleco Lopez third.
Rodrigues leads the overall standings by a tick over 11 minutes from KTM's Cyril Despres"

Official MRW Statement on Marc Coma’s Injury

"A fall on the first part of the third stage of the Rally of Morocco —a 357km run between Erfoud and Zagora— has taken Marc Coma out of the race. The MRW rider suffered a dislocated left shoulder in the accident and was taken to hospital in Errachidia, where his injury was treated. He will return to Spain tomorrow. His teammate, Joan Pedrero, had little luck on the stage either, and a navigation mistake cost him several minutes and lost him a place in the overall standings.

Second after two stages, Marc Coma’s fall eliminated him from the race. In an off-road section requiring a moderation in speed, the rider hit a mound of sand with his rear wheel at about 50 km/h and was flung over the handlebars of his KTM, hitting his left shoulder. Hélder Rodrigues, who had been riding behind him, came to assist until Joan Pedrero arrived. At that point, the rally helicopter landed to take Coma to hospital. The dislocation was subsequently attended to and the first X-rays were taken, ruling out any fractures. Coma will travel today to Casablanca, before being flown to Barcelona tomorrow for further tests on the extent of the injury"

Its the nature of the beast. He has been ontop of his game for many years now and things can change quite quickly. Some reports say that he broke his collar bone and others say that he merely dislocated it?

Either way I wish him a speedy Recovery!

Unconfirmed reports claim that an attempt to operate on Marc Coma's shoulder was abandoned when the doctor discovered that his blood was KTM Orange in colour and circulating at Mach 2.

Yip!! A dislocated shoulder is a motherf@cker though, did mine about 8-10 years ago and it took forever to come right, also felt it for years after.
