    inmate Giada confirmed she saw an ambulance around CP3 and they told the guy was not fine but at the moment she doesn't know who he is and what happened. Fingers crossed me too

    Hope it's not a fatality, too many deaths as it is from last year.

    Fingers crossed as well

    +1 Imagine how tough it must have been if he got in with only 5 minutes to spare!

    Must have been sick trying to kick start that 650 after dragging it around out of the sand. :knary

    Tuareg Rallye 2013 - Sunday 10th March - Fatality

    I have spoken with the media representative of the organisation, and in an effort to alleviate any concerns that friends and family of competitors on the rally may have, they have asked my to make the following announcement ahead of their official briefing this evening:

    It is with great sadness that I can confirm that rider #25 - Wesley Beane (GBR) suffered a fatal accident earlier today during a special stage.

    Further information will be released as appropriate.

    I had the good fortune of meeting Wesley at last years Tuareg. What a great guy and a great sense of humour. Rallysport has indeed lost another great competitor today. My thoughts go out to his family and friends. You will not be forgotten Wesley. R I P
