José Gonçalves (Katusha-Alpecin) took out the win on stage 4 of the Ster ZLM Toer in La Gileppe, out-sprinting breakaway companion Laurens De Plus (Quick-Step Floors) to take the overall race lead.

"I am feeling very good. I bring with me great form from last month's Giro d'Italia. I think our team here is very good and especially strong. Today it was full gas. I tried to go alone near the end and managed to win. I am very happy with this jersey and we will do everything we can to defend the yellow jersey on the last day," said Gonçalves.

Overnight leader Primoz Roglic (LottoNl-Jumbo) put in a valiant effort to chase the duo, but could not close the gap. He finished 22 seconds down in third, but his four-second time bonus wasn't enough to keep him from slipping to second behind Gonçalves. The Slovenian is now at 8 seconds, with De Plus in third at 10.
