Price out as Cornejo holds Dakar lead

Cornejo on his way to the stage win

Former winner Toby Price has crashed out of second place in the Dakar, breaking his collarbone, as Honda’s Jose Ignacio Cornejo has maintained his lead with third place behind Kevin Benavides and Ricky Brabec in today’s stage nine.

After stopping to help injured Price, Briton Sam Sunderland carried on and finished an incredible fourth – despite having a crash trying to make up time. He’s now third in the overall race but 14 minutes behind. Honda’s Ricky Brabec also stopped to help Price, who was airlifted to hospital and has been confirmed as having a broken collarbone and extensive bruising.

Featuring a loop stage starting and finishing at the coastal city of Neom, day nine at the 2021 Dakar turned out to be a testing one. Covering a total distance of 579km, riders faced a 109km liaison that led into the 465km timed special. A mixture of fast gravel tracks and sandy valleys proved to be a huge challenge to all competitors as they made their way through the stage.

Third overall coming into stage nine, Sam Sunderland was the fourth competitor to take to the start of the special. With times between the top riders being very close, the Brit successfully passed the first three checkpoints inside the top five. Two kilometers from the fifth checkpoint, Sam unfortunately came across teammate Toby Price who had crashed heavily and needed medical assistance. Staying with Price until he was airlifted to hospital, Sunderland then continued on with the remainder of the stage. Finishing in a commendable fourth place once his time lost helping Price was recovered, the 2017 Dakar Champion lies third in the provisional overall standings.

Sam Sunderland:“Obviously, it’s been a pretty rough day today. I started off strong, and was making good progress, handling the tricky navigation well. Then I came across Toby lying in the riverbed with Brabec already stopped with him. I helped there till the helicopter arrived then set off again and tried to get back into a good rhythm. Around 100 kilometers or so after that I was opening up for the group I was with and was looking down at the road book, hit a rock and was sent over the handlebars. It was quite a big crash, quite a big impact, and luckily I wasn’t too badly hurt. But I damaged the road book tower on the bike had no navigation from then on. I managed to reach the finish by following others but that’s always hard. A really tough day for the team, but this is Dakar and it’s always a challenge. We’ll regroup and do our best again tomorrow.”

And there was more disaster for Yamaha as Ross Branch went out with a bike fault. His team-mates Jamie McCanney and Andrew Short are already out with machine issues.

David Knight took a solid 19th and is now 27th overall. Neil Hawker was 40th today and is 40th overall.
