Amgen Tour of California. Stage 4. Another top 10 finish for Davide Ballerini in chaotic finale
Stage 4 of the Amgen Tour of California was decided in a sprint, with Davide Ballerini finishing sixth behind stage winner Fabio Jakobsen. It was a chaotic finale, with a crash outside the final three kilometers, but with great teamwork, Jonas Gregaard was able to stay in the first group. He moved into fourth place overall, but the jury decided that because of the crash, everyone earned the same time as the first group, dropping Gregaard back to the seventh place overall. Sports director Dmitriy Fofonov doesn’t accept the jury decision and sent an official protest.
