Judith Arndt (HTC-Columbia) won stage four of La Route de France, a 24.3km time trial in Saint Georges/Baulche. The 34-year-old German topped runner-up Tatiana Antoshina (Team Valdarno) by 15 seconds while third-placed Olga Zabelinskaia (Safi-Pasta Zara) stopped the clock a further two seconds down.

Arndt's victory moves her into second place overall, only one second down on race leader Annemiek Van Vleuten (Nederland Bloeit) who finished in ninth place, 38 seconds behind the German. Russia's Olga Zabelinskaia (Safi-Pasta Zara) also narrowed her GC deficit to Van Vleuten, remaining in third overall but trailing the Dutchwoman by only seven seconds.

"It was a good race for me," said Arndt. "I felt good the whole way. The roads are dead here so maybe it helped that I've been training in Australia on similar roads, but overall it was a really nice course. A little bit windy and a few smaller hills.

"However I'm still one second behind on Annemiek and she is riding well and can sprint really well. The next two stages are harder than the previous stages which is good. We'll have to sit down tonight and come up with a plan of how to take GC. I will try everything for sure, but it's not going to be easy."

The peloton will tackle the penultimate stage on Friday, 110.9km from Luxeuil Les Bains to Saint Die Des Vosges. Tomorrow's parcours features two categorised climbs in the final 27.5km: the Col de Mon Repos at 27.5km to go and the Côtes de Sauceray with 13.9km remaining.
