Race leader Olav Kooij of Jumbo-Visma sprinted to victory on the fourth and final stage of the ZLM Tour and won the race overall. Led by two teammates through the final corner, Kooij crossed the line ahead of Sam Welsford (DSM) and Jakub Mareczko (Alpecin-Deceuninck).

Even though Kooij had to change his bike twice in the stage, he successfully defended his lead to win his first stage at the four-day race, after claiming the leader’s jersey on stage 2 by finishing second to Mareczko.
