Super-fast threadjack w results: Direct Energie's Lillian Calmejane took the fourth stage of the Vuelta a España with an attack out of the day's breakaway, surviving alone to San Andres de Teixeido for the victory. Calmejane's surprising win gave the team its first World Tour success since its Europcar days, all the way back in 2013. BMC's Darwin Atapuma took second on the stage, and with the time bonus he managed to capture the overall lead from Movistar's Ruben Fernandez, who lost time on the final climb anyway. Alejandro Valverde moves into second overall.
Betanzos - San Andrés de Teixido 163.5 km
In a shocking turn of events today's Vuelta stage will finish on a climb. Seem to be more of the scenic kind than the brutal kind we had yesterday.
Miradorian of the Day: Alejandro Valverde
Can we expect another Movistar supernova? Either way Valverde should win a day like this.
