Bernhard ten Brinke crashed heavily on Tuesday in the third stage of the Dakar Rally.

Nasser Al Attiyah had his third day success in Saudi Arabia.

Ten Brinke was on his way to a top five classification in the third stage, over 403 kilometers with start and finish in Wadi Ad Dawasir.

But with 40 kilometers to go, the Toyoya van de Achterhoeker and his Belgian navigator Tom Colsoul flipped over.

The duo got off unharmed, but the damage to their Toyota is great.

They lose hours and no longer play a significant role in the rankings.

Ten Brinke started the desert rally with a fifth place in the prologue.

He also lost a lot of time in the first stage, after which he climbed somewhat in the rankings with a tenth place on Monday.

Ten Brinke is participating for the eighth time in the Dakar Rally, where he equaled his best performance last year by finishing seventh in the final classification.
