The tenth stage went from Haradh to Shubaytah. The rated distance should be 534 kilometers, but had to be stopped after 345 kilometers.
Since there were several accidents, all helicopters were in use. As “quick first aid” was no longer possible for another accident, the stage was ended prematurely.
Pablo Quintanilla (Husqvarna) started the stage first, but lost around four minutes before the first checkpoint. Another two minutes were added, which ultimately put him in seventh place in the daily standings.
Things went better for Barreda, who took the virtual lead early on. Since he was able to win this stage, he must start as first on a difficult to navigate route on Thursday. That could turn out to be a disadvantage.
The leader in the overall classification, Ricky Brabec (Honda), was able to hang onto Barreda and took second place. This enabled him to extend his overall lead even further.
