A rattled Nacho Cornejo has undergone a medical examination after soldiering on to the finish following his crash at km 252. The Chilean, who started today's stage in the overall lead, has been left with no choice but to withdraw from the race and leave his teammates Ricky Brabec and Kevin Benavides to duke it out for the win

I wonder where that gravel road goes? And that, has usually made all the difference. (Apologies to Mr Frost)

At this rate of attrition, James might start to fancy his chances for a podium... Last man riding.

Graham Sharp s thoughts on Nacho

I donít think a factory rider would just quick that easily. After risking your life for 6000kms I doubt those decisions are made lightly...head injuries and translations from his native Chilean are vague at best of times... (just my 2 cents)

I suspect something more sinister.

"... it was later announced that he has been forced to retire due to a 'risk of concussion'. Organiser ASO said that Cornejo "was not feeling well", with sources close to the rider telling Motorsport.com that he had received a heavy hit on his head in the crash..."

Not much on Laia this year.

Still very reasonable 29th place considering she is not 100% race fit yet.

I think she sometimes gets overlooked for her exceptional skill due to years of running up at the top with the big names.
