The two-time Dakar motorcycle champion suffered a fall during practice in Salta and is admitted to intensive care.

Kevin Benavides suffered a serious accident on Saturday, May 11, while training at Mantillo MX Park, a motocross track in Salta, and suffered a head injury, multiple traumas, and a fracture of his left arm. The two-time Dakar champion was preparing to compete in the Desafío Ruta 40, the fourth date of the W2RC World Rally Raid, which will take place from June 1 to 7 in Córdoba San Juan and La Rioja.

The first reports pointed more than anything to the arm injury and the possible absence in the Argentine competition.. However, as the hours passed, the information indicated that the KTM rider became unconscious and was initially admitted to the San Bernardo hospital in Salta and was later transferred to a private clinic.

This Wednesday a report issued by the Austrian team was released in which it was noted: “The accident leaves Benavides out of the next race to be held in Argentina and we wish him all the best for a complete and quick recovery.” Team director Andreas Hölzl assured: “His injuries are not too serious and, although he is still under observation, he is improving day by day.”

However, in the afternoon of that same Wednesday, Kevin’s press team spoke out and noted: “Kevin suffered an accident during his training session and currently has a reserved prognosis. At this time, we ask all media outlets and the general public to remain cautious and respectful regarding the information disseminated, as this is a delicate situation. “As soon as we have an official medical report or any pertinent information to communicate, you will be informed in a timely manner through official channels.”
