Puig (Spain) (AFP)

Final breath on the 4th stage of the Tour of Spain: the Dutchman Fabio Jakobsen (Deceunink-Quick Step) won a few inches in the sprint ahead of Sam Bennett (BORA-Hansgrohe) in El Puig (east), near Valencia.

It was not until the photo-finish to decide the Dutch champion and his Irish counterpart, in a 175.5 km stage, part of Cullera and marked by the abandonment of the Dutchman Steven Kruijswijk (Jumbo-Visma), third Tour de France in July, due to knee pain.
