Alain broke his leg in a motobyke accident as he drove through a sandstorm trying to get to Nouakchott. He was lucky and with a lot of pain he could get his leg from under his bike and get some cars to stop. People helped getting his moto up and he rode for a few km to the Gendarmerie control where he rested for a while. A car with some french people arrived and brought him to Nouakchott, while one of the travellers drove his byke.
He went straight into a Private Clinique where he was operated and here you see him waiting for his plane back to France.
He never lost his good humour and he thinks he'll be back in 5 months to pick his byke and keep riding.
