Dakar 2011: Stage 4

Moving forward nicely.  Another stage down and another good run for the Nissans.  There are three unknown results from today but all the top Nissan teams are running well with four teams within the top 20 overall.  The DNF count is up to two Nissan teams.

As an aside, the best hope for an overall win and multiple Stage wins by an American, Robby Gordon, had a catastrophic wheel bearing failure, thought to be partially the result of a damaged spindle, which took him out of th event entirely...
