Jolien D'Hoore (Wiggle High5) won the fourth stage of the Giro Rosa in a photo finish sprint whilst British rider Hannah Barnes moved into the points lead.

It was unclear at first who had cinched the win in a close finish, with initial reports putting Chloe Hosking (Ale Cipollini) in the top spot. However, officials placed D'Hoore ahead of the Australian sprinter, followed by Coryn Rivera (Team Sunweb) in third.
