The King of the Mountains jersey changed hands again at the Tour of Britain as Nic Dlamini took those particular honours in stage four, from teammate Scott Davies.
Dlamini, who’d worn the jersey after the opening stage, had relinquished it to Davies for the subsequent two stages but Dlamini found himself in the 6-man breakaway that saw him in position to regain the jersey. Which he duly did picking up points at the three Skoda KoM’s along the route.
The stage was won in Royal Leamington Spa by Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) ahead of Sacha Modolo (EF) and Patrick Bevin (BMC) as a sprint finish concluded the 183.5km stage from Nuneaton.

It’s an incredible feeling to keep the jersey in the team and keep our 10th position in the GC. In this tour it’s all about getting better and we’re looking to improve on the overall too and keeping this jersey.
Scotty and I are really good mates so, there are still 4 stages coming up so we’ll see as it might change hands again but as long as it’s still within the team then that’s okay.
