Tour of Britain 2014, Stage 4: Kwiatkowski takes the win

10th September 2014

Stage 4 of the Tour of Britain was 185km from Worcester to Bristol. 

There was a break of eight riders, and with 10km to go, three of them got away from the other five - the three were Peter Velits of BMC, Albert Timmer of Giant Shimano, and Lasse Norman Hansen of Garmin-Sharp.

There were great views as the peloton rode along the Avon on a late summer day.

Leaving the Avon, there was a short climb, with the summit at 1.8km to go. Timmer was first over the climb, followed by Jack Bauer and Nicolas Roche. However, it was Kwiatkowski how swept past them just before the finish line, for the win, with Timmer second, and Teuns third.

Ben Swift was seventh, six seconds back, at the front of the peloton which included Bradley Wiggins.

Kwiatkowski is the new leader of the GC, by 3s from Zardini. Wiggins is in sixth place at 27s.
