2018 Giro d'Italia

Stage 4: Catania to Caltagirone

The peloton heads back to Italy after a travel day. The fourth stage winds across the undulating hills of southern Sicily. The route includes two categorized climbs, and many other uncategorized ascents, including the final climb to Caltagirone. Will it be a bunch sprint or a small group? The climb will dictate the outcome. The course then runs across the town center, skirting famous places such as the stairs of Santa Maria del Monte.

Giro stage 4: Wellens wins tough sprint; Froome loses time

Tim Wellens

The Italian motherland welcomed the Giro d’Italia’s return Tuesday with a tricky, hilly run through Sicily, won by Tim Wellens out of a small group in Caltagirone.

Canadian Michael Woods (EF Education First-Drapac) was second to Lotto Fix All’s Belgian. Enrico Battaglin (LottoNL-Jumbo) rounded out the stage 4 podium in third. Rohan Dennis (BMC Racing) kept his overall lead after the 202km race. Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott) moved up into third overall with a fourth-place result on the day.

“It’s been hectic with a lot of corners and a lot of public in the finale,” said Dennis. “It was a question of staying out of trouble from the last 10 kilometers until the bottom of the last climb. It’s pretty common that I’ve lost the leader’s jersey after one day in other grand tours. To retain the maglia rosa today is big for me.”

Pre-race favorite Chris Froome (Team Sky), on the other hand, lost 17 seconds to his rivals up the final climb.

“I was well positioned, but I wasn’t very well placed in that final kick,” Froome said. “I am getting better and better each day after that crash. I am looking forward to getting through tomorrow before getting to Etna, then we’ll see.”

3. Simon Yates (Mitchelton-Scott), at :17

Edoardo Zardini (Wilier Triestina-Selle Italia) kicked off the action in the final 10 kilometers of racing, soon after the remnants of the early five-man breakaway was caught.

Valerio Conti (UAE Team Emirates) followed his Italian countryman’s move right away on a short climb, one of many in the hilly route.

However, before long, Conti attacked and went alone off the front.

His escape was aided by a big bottleneck in the peloton, just inside of 7km to go. The crash wasn’t major, but the bunch funneled into a narrow road, bringing the back half of the field to a standstill.

Eventually, with around 3.2km remaining, the peloton caught Conti.

The route got technical into the final few kilometers, twisting through the narrow streets of the finish town. Maximillian Schachmann (Quick-Step Floors), leader of the best young rider classification, came to grief in one of those bends. However, he managed to keep the jersey after mounting a quick chase to the finish.

As the peloton accordioned through the bends, four riders snuck off the front.

Their move wouldn’t last on the grinding, short climb to the finish.

Battaglin led out the sprint early, about 300 meters from the line, once the race had regrouped.

Wellens was right on his wheel and opened up his sprint with Woods on his wheel. The EF rider put up a good fight but couldn’t come around Wellens in the finale.

“I started with a bit of an advantage at the beginning of the climb,” said Wellens. “I didn’t have to go full-on from the bottom; I could wait for the last 200 meters.”

Although the Belgian is only 19 seconds back in the overall, he said he’s not trying to seize the maglia rosa.

“I think for the maglia rosa, I’m a little bit too far behind,” he said. “And Etna, I’ve never done the climb, so I’m not counting on the maglia rosa. I’m happy with the stage win.”

Wednesday’s stage 5 from Agrigento to Santa Ninfa should offer another hilly race, albeit shorter than stage 4 at 153km. The riders face Mount Etna on Thursday.

“Of course I’m very happy. It relieves us from the stress. Now we can go easy for the rest of the Giro, and often when you don’t have stress, everything comes easier,” Wellens added.
