Tragedy has struck the 2020 Dakar Rally with the death of Portugese rider Paulo Gonalves on Sunday's stage six.
Australia's Toby Price was first at the scene of the crash and stayed with Gonalves for more than an hour helping the medical team at the site.
Goncalves, 40, was airlifted to hospital and subsequently pronounced dead.
Monday's stage eight of the rally has been cancelled in a mark of mourning by Dakar participants.
Several riders including Kevin Benavides, Price and Stefan Svitko stopped to assist Gonclaves. They were all subsequently awarded time by rally organisers with Benavides winning the stage on the adjusted time.
Price was was awarded a time of just 7m57s behind Benavides to be seventh on the day and fourth overall.
On provisional times he had dropped to 11th overall, having begun the day third after losing more than 16 minutes when the rear wheel fell off his bike on stage six.
The KTM rider will resume the Dakar Rally 28 minutes and 44 seconds behind leader American Ricky Brabec (Honda). Chile's Pablo Quintanilla (Husqvarna) and Jose Ignacio Cornejo are second and third respectively.
