- I am pretty satisfied with my performance today, but, of course, would be better to finish on the podium and to take some bonus seconds. It was a hard day, but all the biggest and decisive climbs are still ahead. I feel good, but we still have Alexey Lutsenko as the leader of the team. We will see, how the race will go on in the next days, but, for sure, our team is ready for the fight, - said Sergei Chernetskii.
The Polish Champion Michal Kwiatkowski became the stage winner after a powerful sprint in the end. He took 3 seconds over Dylan Teuns, George Bennett and Sergei Chernetskii. Alexey Lutsenko was not far at all, finishing 22nd, 18 seconds behind the winner.
Kwiatkowski is the new overall leader, while Chernetskii is fourth, +0.14.
Stage 5 of the race will start in Kopalnia Soli and will end in Bielsko-Biala after 152 km of racing.
