LottoNL-Jumbo's Jos van Emden takes over the lead in the Eneco Tour after a victory in the stage four time trial

LottoNL-Jumbo‘s Jos van Emden took over the ownership of the leaders jersey at the Eneco Tour after an impressive victory in the stage four time trial.

The Dutchman completed the 13.9km course in 16:34 to beat his teammate and compatriot Wilco Kelderman by five seconds.

Overnight leader Jesper Asselman finished well off the pace and relinquished the jersey to van Emden, with the lack of time gaps from the first three flat stages meaning the general classification is now identical to the stage result.

The race heads towards some hills on stages five, six and seven, meaning the GC is set for a shakeup in the coming days, with the likes of Kelderman, Philippe Gilbert and Greg Van Avermaet well placed to contend.
