“Just to tell everyone that both me and Ruben are safe and well and back in the bivouac,” the 40-year-old wrote. “We jumped off a dune and crashed the car nose first. The Dakar unfortunately is finished for us.”

The British motorcyclist Sam Sunderland, who was leading the race, also abandoned his title defence due to back pain after being hurt during a jump.

Adrien van Beveren of France won the fourth stage in just over four hours. He also moved into the overall lead. Sébastien Loeb won the car stage.
