Team Jumbo-Visma (UK) - Press Release: Wout van Aert has won the Tour of Britain’s queen stage with great display of power. The Belgian champion beat world champion Julian Alaphilippe on the steep final climb. Thanks to his victory, Van Aert recaptured the lead in the general classification.
In the fourth stage the riders had to cope with three thousand altitude metres in a stage of more than 210 kilometres. A front group of six riders immediately broke away. Thanks to Team Jumbo-Visma the breakaway riders were caught before the final even started.
In the final kilometres, Pascal Eenkhoorn and George Bennett proved to be ideal teammates for Van Aert. Eenkhoorn kept the Belgian leader at the front on the penultimate climb of the day. A little later, Bennett personally made sure Van Aert was dropped in a good position at the foot of the final climb.
