Cycling: Groenewegen edges out home hopes for stage win

BUILTH WELLS, United Kingdom, (APP - UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News -7th Sept,2016) - Dutchman Dylan Groenewegen recorded his second win in the United Kingdom this year as he triumphed in the fourth stage of the Tour of Britain on Wednesday.

The 23-year-old -- who won on the Tour de Yorkshire earlier this year -- held off home hopes Dan McLay and Ben Swift on what was the climax to the longest stage of the race, 217km.

Belgian Julien Vermote, winner of the second stage, retained the yellow jersey after finishing fifth and holds a six-second advantage over British rider Stephen Cummings.

However, British sprint legend Mark Cavendish never got in the mix as the 31-year-old 'Manx Missile' got cut adrift during the stage and came in over five minutes behind the peloton.
