Paulo Gonçalves, a Portuguese motorbike rider, died Sunday during the Dakar Rally after crashing in Saudi Arabia.

Gonçalves, 40, was about halfway through the 339-mile seventh stage south of Riyadh when he fell and suffered cardiac arrest. Rally organizers said on their website that a medical helicopter arrived within eight minutes.

Gonçalves was pronounced dead at a hospital

Gonçalves, who was competing in the race for the 13th time since his debut in 2006, is the first racer to die during the rally since Michal Hernik of Poland died in 2015 in Argentina.
