Good on PAU for this. I'm going to assume, fwiw, that the riders who passed by didn't understand the nature of the injury and/or thought things were under control with PAU there.
Even more FB:
Probably the hardest stage of the rally today in Fiambala, we were so lucky that it rained all morning!!! The stage was hard, all sand and some pretty big uphills and downhills. They say that tomorrow's stage will be even tougher!!! Thanks as always to everyone for your support
Dakar 2013, 11th Stage, La Rioja - Fiambalà
483 km stage (302 miles) including 221 km special test
Goncalves on the podium again for Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain
Paulo Goncalves took second place in the much-feared La Rioja to Fiambalà stage of the Dakar 2013. The Portuguese rider rode an error-free race on the TE449RR by Speedbrain which handled the job of the sandy terrain perfectly. Paulo thus moves up to eleventh place on the overall leader-board.
Alessandro Botturi too, put in a valiant effort struggling throughout the stage with a fractured pinky on his left-hand after yesterdays fall. Alessandro consolidates his fifth overall position with three days to go, whittling away at the time of Jakes who finished five seconds behind the Italian rider.
Joan "Bang Bang" Barreda was less fortunate, finishing in sixth place. He battled on through the special test with a pain in the left shoulder, as well as an aching hand from a previous fall. Matt Fish, too made up ground coming in twenty-first.
The Husqvarna Rallye Team by Speedbrain thus rounds off another successful day with three out of the first seven riders, and a ninth podium place in eleven days of racing.
Tomorrow its back to Chile with the 715 km (447 mile) Fiambalà-Copiapò stage including a 319 km special and a difference in height of some 3000 metres as the stage takes on the Andes.
Paulo Goncalves: I rode a great race. Im pleased for myself and for the whole team who really worked well together in this stage. I was really up for it today, and Id love to be able to win a stage before its over! Ill keep trying.
Joan Barreda: I hit a hole at high speed and felt an intense pain in my left shoulder. I had to slow the pace right down so that it wouldnt get worse. My hand was playing up a lot too. I hope to feel better for the last three days.
Alessandro Botturi: My finger was really causing me a lot of pain. I thought that I wasnt going to be able to make it, but I hung in there. Im pleased with the way that it went today. The thing is still wide open.

Addie's showing a bit of skin today.
Edit:Luckily they kept it to a minimum!
The fucking ski dude again!
Somebody tweet carlton that we're calling in a fire mission on his location.
Enough is enough.
Is it just me or has she lost weight since last year?
Her name certainly didn't get any smaller
They would race the shit out of that in America.
KURT Rocks Stage 11 !!!
2 Stage wins for a Dakar rookie. Is that a new record?
Yes. He. Did.
Seems like Caselli has a bright future in Dakar. Kudos to him.
Watch Kurt riding again!
EDIT: just half the sequence Fr4 showed...
Just for reference: KTM has him. One of the top riders for KTM in states right now. ISDE Team Captain. Etc.I'm guessing he was the best choice they had when Coma went out. If not for Nav, I almost expected him to do better.
Not that I'm not happy!
I hear a bit of Nicky Hayden when listening to Kurt. It's both vocal intonation as well as general attitude/humbleness.
