Suzuki wins in Minami Shinshu

Shinri Suzuki (Shimano) moved into the overall lead of the Tour of Japan with victory on stage four in Shinshu on Wednesday. Suzuki finished ahead of Claudio Corioni (De Rosa-Stac Plastic) and Junya Sano (Team Nippo) in a six-man group separated from the peloton by 32 seconds.

After holding the race lead since the opening day of the tour Michael Matthews (Jayco-Skins) finally relinquished the leader's jersey. The Australian finished at the front of the peloton to maintain his lead in the points classification.

Suzuki and the six of seven men who shared his finish time had attacked on the last of 12 laps of the circuit around Minami Shinsu. Despite the peloton's efforts to drag the leaders back before the finish, they fell 32 second short of their goal.
