DAKAR RALLY 2020 Saudi Arabia
Stage 8: Wadi Al Dawasir - Wadi Al Dawasir
474 special stage kilometres
Monday, January 13th 2020





The decease of Paulo Gonçalves during yesterday stage 7 between Riyadh and Wadi Al-Dawasir has left the entire Dakar, especially the bikers, in shock. Paulo, a beloved figure of the rally, was immensely respected by both veterans and less experienced competitors who admired and were inspired by him.


After meeting the riders and making a decision together with the entire motorbike family, the organisers have decided to cancel stage 8 for the motorbikes and quads category, which was supposed to take place on a loop course around Wadi Al-Dawasir, in order to give the riders time to mourn their friend.
