Today was a really black day for Transorientale.
Yesterday in the morning Xu Lang, Chinese driver, suffered a very serious injury - as he tried to help the other car which got stuck. The towing cable has torn and hit Xu Lang in his head. Unfortunately, Chinese driver died today in a hospital.
Moreover, today in the morning on a 6th rally stage an accident occured involving #42 KTM motorcycle driven by Philippe Tonin and #401 Kamaz truck. Philippe Tonin became a second victim of this bloody day.

My deepest condolences.
