Last year’s Giro d’Italia points champion has taken his first win of this year’s race. Jonathan Milan (Lidl-Trek) put on a display of pure power on the finishing straight of stage 4 to beat Kaden Groves (Alpecin-Deceuninck) and Phil Bauhaus (Bahrain Victorious).

Filippo Ganna (Ineos Grenadiers) tried to get clear inside the last 4 km, but he was caught to set up a bunch kick.

Besides Milan’s win, the other big news of the day was the abandon of Biniam Girmay (Intermarché-Wanty) after two crashes. Overall leader Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) finished safely in the peloton to maintain his grip on the pink jersey.
