The unusually harsh European winter called a premature end to the fourth stage of the Tour Méditerranéen due to a risk of freezing rain and snow.

The scheduled 160 kilometre race was halted at the 114 kilometre mark near St. Paul en Foret after authorities in the Alpes-Maritimes department warned of inclement conditions.

At that point in the race, a breakaway including Julien El Fares (Cofidis), Jonathan Thire (BigMat-Auber 93) and Dominique Cornu (Skil-Shimano) were some 1:15 off the front of the peloton.

After a long discussion over how to proceed, race officials improvised a finish line and had the breakaway sprint for the stage win. El Fares took the victory and was presented on the podium as the stage winner, though, with the stage neutralised he retained his overall position from the previous day.

The general classification remains the same heading into the final stage, with Française Des Jeux's Jussi Veikkanen in the overall lead ahead of William Bonnet of Bouygues Telecom.
