    12:58 Kevin Benavides done for today
    Kevin Benavides has wrapped up today's special 6'35' behind teammate Joan Barreda. Give or take a few seconds, this is the same time the Argentinian biker spent trying to help Paulo Gonçalves, so it will be deducted from his time this evening. As a result, the stage win is still up in the air

    I noticed the 2 HERO riders didn't continue on past the crash - understandably.

    So is Toby riding in the dark ? Just thinking of him all alone in the night. Do the road books etc all have backlights etc?

    There are three other Hero riders and #050 CS Santosch is at WP8.
    We shouldn't jump to conclusions.

    Thoughts also with #27 Joaquim Rodrigues - Hero Motosports Team Rally. His sister married Paulo. He would have arrived at the scene maybe half an hour afterwards. He doesn't look to have gone on from there.
