Haro and Roma still finished the stage only 26 minutes behind stage winner Nasser Al-Attiyah, but the 45-year old Roma was evacuated via helicopter and flown to Lima, Peru for further tests.

Roma won the championship in 2004 and 2014, but unfortunately it seems like his 2018 campaign will come to an early end.

Hopefully Roma can make a full recovery after the brutal crash.
