Anyone know how/why Charlie Boorman is out of the Dakar? His results stop after stage 5.

He crashed out in stage six and broke his hand, so he retired.

Would be a bitch to ride one handed, especially today, check out Dakar.com (http://www.dakar.com) for stage details. They'll be finding sand for months to come :(

Cyril Despres dislocated his collarbone and is still riding. He must have the same strength / stamina as chuck norris!
