Our hero of stage 3, Ben O’Connor, held onto 8th place in the GC and still holds the white jersey for leading the young rider’s category following stage four of the Tour of the Alps. Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana) won the stage in Lienz (134km) after the race crossed from Italy into Austria. George Bennett (LottoNL-Jumbo) finished second and teammate Koen Bouwman was third. For our team, Louis Meintjes rode strongly as he spent a large portion of the race in the breakaway as one of nine riders with sporting director Alex Sans Vega pleased with the South Africans efforts ahead of the Giro d’Italia..
