Stage four gave the teams opportunity to show off their team time trial skills. For the climbers this would have been a day they’d want to get out the way as quick as possible. For the sprinter and the TT specialists, this would have been a much more enjoyable occasion. Verona set the scene for a mighty Lycra clad, aero battle on bikes. With out further ado let’s have a look at the day’s action.
