Tayler Wiles (United States) won stage 4 of the Women's Tour of New Zealand from a breakaway that succeeded to the final climb in Admiral Hill. It is the third stage win for the US National team, having already won the opening team time trial and the second stage. Wiles won the race to the top of the hill ahead of Lauren Kitchen (Australia) by one second and Joanne Hogan (Tibco-SVB) by five seconds.

The win pushed Wiles up into the overall race lead ahead of the event's previous race leader and her own teammate Megan Guarnier. Guarnier is now sitting in second place six seconds back and teammate Evelyn Stevens is in third overall nine seconds back.
