A rattled Nacho Cornejo has undergone a medical examination after soldiering on to the finish following his crash at km 252. The Chilean, who started today's stage in the overall lead, has been left with no choice but to withdraw from the race and leave his teammates Ricky Brabec and Kevin Benavides to duke it out for the win.
Kevin Benavides came in third today, rounding off a Honda 1-2-3 both in the stage classification and in the general standings. Nacho Cornejo is no longer the overall leader after losing 17'42' to Ricky Brabec. The new leader, Kevin Benavides, is just over a minute ahead of Ricky Brabec and Nacho Cornejo with two stages to go until the finish in Jeddah. All in all, a great day for the Wings!
Ricky Brabec is the winner of stage 10. The American took the reins at km 126 and never looked back despite having to open the way after overtaking Nacho Cornejo. It's his third win of the year (including the prologue) and his sixth overall!
Ricky Brabec has wrapped up the stage and will very likely take his second win of the year. Joan Barreda will have to settle for second, while Kevin Benavides, Matthias Walkner and Skyler Howes fight for third place.
