Phillip is now in 58th place overall, after a 57th place finish in stage 7.

Unfortunately in Stage 7 Portuguese Rider and 13 times Dakar veteran Paulo Gonçalves was killed in an accident.

As a result of this Stage 8 of Dakar 2020 has been cancelled in respect of Paulo.

Paulo gained attention in Stage 3 of this year’s event by doing an engine swap in the desert, on his own, with only the tools on his bike to use.
