Watch: Dakar competitors pay respects to Paulo Goncalves

Charles Bradley

A minute’s silence was observed, and the bike and quad competitors were excused from competition on Monday. As they remained in the bivouac, Laia Sanz and Toby Price give their thoughts and recollections of one of their own, who so sadly died doing what he loved.

Speaking of his sorrow for the Portuguese and his family's loss, Price concluded: “They lost a good warrior, that’s for sure.”
