The second day in a row the team X-Raid Mini continues to incur losses at the “Dakar-2018”. After the American with Bryce Menzies of fighting has left Joan Nani Roma, who was considered one of the top favorites before the start in Lima. The reason for the gathering was again a hard coup.
The incident occurred on the last meters of the distance of 295 km special stage. The reason was the pit, which, it seems, was not written in the road book, because the ROMs into this trap nearly hit several riders, including Nasser al-Attia, who dominated from the start. The problem was that the Spaniard flew into a hole at a greater speed than the other participants. As a result, the car flew up and made a few somersaults.
The crew managed to get to the finish line, but if the Navigator Roma escaped injury, the winner in 2014 was sent to the nearest hospital. As reported by several Spanish media, the driver received bruises to the head and neck. But even if the state will allow to continue further participation, he can not. Team X-Raid Mini has confirmed that Roma are excluded from the Protocol, has not completed the road section after the third stage.
