The 4th stage of the Tour of Croatia finished with a 22km climb. Riccardo Zoidl (Trek-Segafredo) showed he was the strongest climber at the race, taking the win ahead of Matja Kvasina (Synergy Baku) with Victor de la Parte (CCC Sprandi) in 3rd. With today’s stage only 124km long and the last 20km all being uphill, it was near impossible that an early break would succeed today. Nevertheless, there was a lot of attacking in the early stages and our African Team was also involved. 8 riders eventually got away but as expected they were caught on the big final climb. With Team Dimension Data.
