12:47 Brabec done for the day
Ricky Brabec has wrapped up the stage and will very likely take his second win of the year. Joan Barreda will have to settle for second, while Kevin Benavides, Matthias Walkner and Skyler Howes fight for third place.

Looking at Brabec's trajectory, seems he is aiming to be 2nd by stage 10 and to lead by Stage 11..

.... the man has a plan, but I still don't like it when a Yank wins an originally African race.

Tomorrow is a long stage, anything can still happen. 511km it seems.

Well done Honda
13:11 Honda scores 1-2-3!
Kevin Benavides came in third today, rounding off a Honda 1-2-3 both in the stage classification and in the general standings. Nacho Cornejo is no longer the overall leader after losing 17'42' to Ricky Brabec. The new leader, Kevin Benavides, is just over a minute ahead of Ricky Brabec and Nacho Cornejo with two stages to go until the finish in Jeddah.

Yes - I have to eat my words from a few days ago - Iím used to eating humble pie.

I donít mind if a yank wins - he is pretty calm and decent.

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 think tomorrow is the longest stage of the whole rally.

Indeed Sunderland and Bareda that sits 10 and 15 minutes back is still in with a chance. Over 500km 10 mins is nothing.
