Stage 4 -

Not sure of the source on this but it may be the same as the VS. feed. Caution on the first part of the bikes, shows a bike down and a close up of the rider in pain. Here's the info off the dakar site:
Duclos crashes

At 07.56 GMT, the Alain Duclos’s warning beacon was triggered after a fall during the first 10 km of the special stage. Under the supervision of the medical team, the rider has been taken back to Er-Rachidia.

Other highlights - look for the camel crossing in front of one of the bikes - holy %*#&@! One of the VW's takes a hard ride on the dropoff from a dune - not sure if it is Miller or not.

Stage 2 -

Here's a shot of the Monster Hummer carrying speed and sliding through the left hander and into the ditch. The euro feed in another video talked about the Hummer rolling but you can clearly see they didn't roll. Nice shot!

0:57 into this video you get a nice shot of the Monster Hummer.

Random truck riding high center or at least he tried to.

No idea what stage this is from - I'm guessing Stage 2

Stage 1 -

Update - latest video of where the Hummer is stuck in the mud.

Where it all starts for the Hummer. Still on the hard stuff in Lisbon. Looks like it is just prior to the start.

Check about 2:23 for the Monster Hummer. I think Miller goes by at :37 into this one.

At 3:45 - the Monster Hummer flies by - don't blink!

Throwing some sand - heads up!

Another sweet shot here.

More Hummer video here.

More Monster Hummer in this shot. Not sure if it is Stage 1 or 2.

Some euroguy's idea of fun. Another drive by of the Hummer. Caution: video is shot sideways.

Grandola - I think this was part of Stage 1. Monster Hummer at 2:00 of this clip.

Quick clip of the Monster Hummer

Eurosport video here - footage of the Monster Hummer where it was stuck at about 3:15 into the movie.

Banhos de Lama - no video of the Monster Hummer here but plenty of cars high centering in the muck. Looks similar to the location that the Monster Hummer was stuck in Stage 1 as shown on the Micron video.

Trucks - Portugal - Stage 2
