Pello Bilbao has won the 4th and penultimate stage in the Tour of the Alps. The Bahrain-Victorious Spaniard descending abilities got him back to the leaders and faster at the line in the picturesque village of Pieve di Bono than Aleksandr Vlasov and leader Simon Yates. Dan Martin looked good and at one moment only 7 seconds down to the front when he took a fall, his momentum was gone, and lost too much time to be battling for the podium places tomorrow…A stage win tomorrow would heal the wounds of today. Nico Roche ended up in a group 18 minutes down to Bilbao.

Who dares wins in Pello’s case…mental descent nevertheless
