Astana Pro Team riders spent the most part of the stage by pursuing the breakaway of the day of 4 riders, which were caught by the peloton around 15 km to go.
- We worked today trying to help Alexey Lutsenko for the final sprint. At the final 500 meters to the finish it was a right turn with the movement of the peloton and it caused some confusion in the bunch. Finally, we have a little bit lost the right moment to the sprint and finished 6th and 7th. Anyway, the team made a good race today, tomorrow is an important stage for the GC, let’s see how the race will develop, - commented Dario Cataldo after the finish.
The fourth stage of Tour of Austria didn’t make any serious changes to the general classification of the race, still lead by Belgium rider Ben Hermans. Dario Cataldo is on 3rd position with 26 seconds from the leader and Andrey Zeits 9th with the gap of 1 minute.
