Pembalap Cile tersebut memulai balapan sebagai pemimpin klasemen. Namun, harapannya untuk jadi juara kandas karena kecelakaan di km 252, etape 10 antara Neom dan Ula. Rute tersebut terbentang 579 km (special stage 342 km).

Ia sempat kehilangan orientasi selama beberapa menit di trek berkelok di tengah lembah. Cornejo terlempar di peringkat ketiga klasemen, 1 menit 7 detik di belakang Kevin Benavides pemimpin baru.

Sayangnya, 159 km menjelang garis finis, rider Monster Energy Honda merasa kondisinya kurang sehat. Kepada Motorsport.com, sumber terdekat Nacho menceritakan kalau kepala pembalap tersebut terbentur.

Ia pun diterbangkan ke rumah sakit di Tabuk, tempat Toby Price dan Luciano Benavides dirawat. Karena mesti menjalani serangkaian tes yang memakan waktu, maka Cornejo mengucapkan selamat tinggal kepada Reli Dakar 2021.

Sementara itu, Ricky Brabec menuntaskan balapan sebagai yang tercepat dengan catatan waktu 3 jam 12 menit 33 detik.

Sementara dua koleganya dari Honda, Joan Barreda dan Kevin Benavides mengikuti dengan selisih waktu 3 menit 15 detik dan 5 menit 11 detik.

Benavides jadi pembuka etape tersebut setelah memenangi stage sebelumnya. Pada km 90, awal netralisasi, di mana karakteristik trek berubah berliku dan bergelombang dengan vegetasi, pembalap Argentina disalip oleh Brabec dan ditinggal hingga 4 menit 51 detik.

Brabec mengambil alih keunggulan pada km 126, dengan 30 detik menjauh dari Cornejo dan 1 menit 05 dari Barreda.

Kemenangan tersebut membuat Benavides kini bertakhta di puncak klasemen, dengan 40 jam 20 menit 8 detik. Sedangkan Brabec sebagai runner-up usai terpaut 51 detik.

Rider KTM, Sam Sunderland, merangsek di tengah dominasi pembalap Honda. Joan Barreda membuka lagi peluang untuk mencuri gelar juara.
