Paulo Goncalves dies at DAKAR yesterday on stage 7...

"Speedy" Paulo Goncalves, died on the course during stage 7 in Saudi Arabia. He was leading Toby Price out of the start and Toby was one of the first on the scene and activated the rescue medivac. Between the three racers that quickly arrived on site, they tried to administer cpr on Paulo and assisted the medics as they got him on board the helicopter. Another report stated that Paulo went into cardiac arrest after the accident and before the helicopter. Stage 8 (Paulo's number) tomorrow has been cancelled as a day of mourning.
EPIC PAULO changing his engine, alone, in the sand on the course and then coming back with a top 5 finish the next day.
