Matteo Trentin, benefitting from a strong lead-out in the final technical kilometres of stage 4 of Vuelta 2017, timed his sprint to perfection. Coming off Juan Jose Lobato‘s wheel to surge past the latter, he won by a bike length to hand his team their second Vuelta stage win two days after he finished runner-up to Yves Lampaert. This victory completed the 28-year-old Italian’s hat-trick of Grand Tour wins and handed him the points’ jersey. Chris Froome finished in the bunch to retain his 2sec race lead.
