Due to two accidents, leg ten of the Transsyberia from Mankhan to Darvi had to be stopped. In their Cayenne S Transsyberia cars, drivers from the Colombian and Australian teams didn’t see a two-metre deep ditch. Christian Pfeil-Schneider, Neil Hopkins and Paul Watson sustained minor injuries and are now in hospital under observation.

As the medical service had to transport the casualties and will not able to be on time for the eleventh leg from Darvi to Altai, this section will instead be driven as a transit leg rather than a timed one. As a result, the overall classification remains unchanged.
