La Route de France: Rowney wins stage 4

Longo Borghini continues in race lead

Loren Rowney won the fourth stage of La Route de France on Thursday in Louhans-Chateaurenaud. Riding for the Australian national team, Rowney won the sprint to the finish line ahead of compatriot Annette Edmondson (Wiggle-Honda) and Roxane Fournier (Poitou-Charantes-Futuroscope).

Overall leader Elisa Longo Borghini (Wiggle-Honda) managed to finish sixth, three seconds back, and maintained her hold on the leader’s jersey. The small splits in the peloton allowed the Italian to extend her lead over Amy Pieters (Team Liv-Plantur), who sits in second place at four seconds back and Eugenia Bujak (BTC City Ljubljana) is in third, seven seconds back. “Tomorrow it’s all about defending the yellow as we go into the mountains!" said Longo Borghini's teammate and runner-up on the day Edmondson.

The penultimate stage 5 will offer a 87.4km race from Vesoul to La Planche des Belles Filles on Friday. The race will conclude and the overall winner decided at the end of stage 6 on Saturday following a 116.4km race from Soultzmatt to Guebwiller.
