"I can't even put my foot on the floor"Joan Barreda won today's stage in the Dakar Rally, beating Adrien Van Beveren by 2'51' and his HRC teammate Kevin Benavides by 8'02', but the report comming from South America is not the best for neither the rider or his team.
Despite his amazing performance, Barreda had an accident around Km 300 and injured himself.
"I started the stage all guns blazing and everything was going well, but around kilometre 300 I went off-track and had a nasty fall. I think I broke my knee, and from then the pain made me slow down. Now it's time to see what we can do about it, but it's looking really bad. I'm sure it's broken, my knee is out of whack and I can't even put my foot on the floor."
