Dominique Robin has won the fourth stage of the Tuareg Rallye on Wednesday. The KTM-rider finished the 200 kilometre long stage in just over three hours. 

The French veteran was just 48 seconds faster than Thorsten Kaiser who hit some trouble in the fourth stage. Kaiser told: “I made a little navigational mistake in the first part of the stage, actually the same as last year. I still don’t know what the right way was, but in the end I found the way back. In the second part I had a small accident that costed me some time.”

Mathieu Delmotte came in third and was happy afterwards, the result meaned he is still in the hunt for a podiumplace when the race finishes on Saturday in Midelt. Therefor he has to pass Kay-Arne Bulsink who saw Delmotte catch up to him. Both riders kept eachother in reach during the rest of the stage. Austrian Ferdinand Kreidl finished twenty minutes behind Robin and sits currently in fifth place in general classification. 

The overall classement is lead by Thorsten Kaiser with an adventage of 29 minutes to Robin. Bulsink is momentarily in third, 22 minutes in front of Delmotte.
