the Belgian Lionel Taminiaux (Alpecin Fenix) won the fourth round of the 4 Days of Dunkirk, contested between Mazingarbe and Aire-sur-la-Lys, of 174.8 km, where Lithuanian Evaldas Siskevicius (Go Sport Roubaix) took the became the new leader.

Taminiaux (Ottignies-Louvain la Neuve, 25) took advantage of a noisy arrival to attack 80 meters from the finish line and put the tire with a small margin before the harassment of Pole Stanislaw Aniolkowski (Bingoal Pauwels), such as shown in the photo. of arrival. Third place went to Belgian Gerben Thijssen (Interarché). All in command of a platoon that reached the finish line in a time of 4:01:55.

It was the second victory for Taminiaux in his professional career and the 12th for the Alpecin team on a predictable sprint day where breakaways spurred the journey. If there is uncertainty for partial victory, there is also uncertainty to establish the general for equality between certain runners.

Finally, and after many accounts, and thanks to the 5 bonus seconds that were reaped in the intermediate steps in the breakaway, Lithuanian Evaldas Siskevicius (Go Sport Roubaix) took the lead with second to Belgian Gerben Thijssen (Intermarché ) and the former leader, the Dutchman Arvid De Kleijn (Uman Powered).

The stage had two significant escapes, the first by Frenchman Delettre and the Lithuanian Siskevicius, the second another with Belgians Robeet and Colman and the Frenchmen Couanon and Danés.

Robeet rallied with 27km to free Colman, who was already settled at the mountain points. But the escape didn’t go far and was neutralized with 8 goals.

The sprinter teams took matters into their own hands by preparing for the arrival of their sprinters. Alpecin adjusted their approach to Taminiaux, who launched a whiplash from a distance that put him in the lead. The last effort gave him victory over Aniolkowski, not without the emotion of the arrival picture.

This Saturday, the fifth stage will take the peloton from Roubaix to Cassel up to 183.7 km, a route plagued by elevations where the climb to Mont Cassel will be repeated up to 12 times (2.4 km at 4.7 percent). A leg breaker with a high end would be key for the general.
