The Italian Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick Step) won the 4th stage of the Tour de France which linked Reims to Nancy for 215 km, without much difficulty, and which ended, as expected, by a massive sprint, despite a attack 11 km from the goal of French Lilian Calmejane (Total Direct Energy).
The big break of the day involved three riders, the Swiss Michael Schär (CCC Team) and two members of Wanty-Groupe Gobert, the French Yoann Offredo (already on the attack on Monday) and the Belgian Frederik Backaert, to attack the actual departure. The last to be resumed was Schär, who, having passed nearly 200 km ahead, was swallowed by the peloton in the Maron coast, the only listed difficulty of the day (4th category), 16 km from goal. Winner Monday in Epernay, Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick Step) keeps the yellow jersey.
The day of Wednesday should be a little more lively, between Saint-Dié-des-Vosges and Colmar, with two coasts of 2nd category and two of 3rd category.
