BARCELONA, May 10. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The German cyclist Lennard Kämna (BORA-hansgrohe) has won this Tuesday the fourth stage of the Giro d’Italia, disputed between Avola and Etna over 172 kilometers, in a pulse against the Spanish Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo), who despite giving up the partial victory takes the provisional leadership and will wear the prestigious ‘pink jersey’.
‘Juanpe’ López was angry when he lost control of the bike in the last corner when he was trying to overtake Kämna. The German took the stage victory, yes, but the young Spanish cyclist from Lebrija, the most explosive on the climb to the Italian volcano, was more than rewarded for his effort and will lead the 105th edition of the ‘Corsa rosa’.
Both were the strongest in a large breakaway that had the approval of the pack of favourites, from which the hitherto leader Mathieu van der Poel (Alpecin-Fenix) soon dropped on the final climb of almost 40 kilometres. The group of favorites arrived at 2:37, without Guillaume Martin, Vincenzo Nibali or Tom Dumoulin, who gave in, nor Miguel Ángel López (Astana) who abandoned.
