Don't miss a moment from Paris-Roubaix and Unbound Gravel, to the Giro d’Italia, Tour de France, Vuelta a España, and everything in between when you join Outside+.

American Adrien Costa is continuing his strong early season showing in Europe, winning Thursday’s stage 4 at Tour de Bretagne and assuming the overall lead in the seven-day race. He attacked solo on the final trip around a four-lap circuit in Lannion, France.

He won the 163km queen stage alone, ahead of Belgian Sebastien Delfosse. Fellow American Colin Joyce was third. With three days of racing remaining, Costa is eight seconds ahead of Lennard Hofstede (Rabobank) in the overall, while Klein Constantia’s Frantisek Sisr is third, 13 seconds behind. Costa, 18, who rides for Axeon Hagens Berman, is part of the U.S. under-23 national team at the French stage race.

Saturday’s stage 6 may prove to be a decisive day with six categorized climbs on the 156km route and six hilly circuits of Fouesnant.
