The Tour de France continued through France's east on Tuesday from Reims to Nancy. Stage four would see an opportunity for the sprinters, with Elia Viviani (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) eventually coming out on top, beating Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates) and Caleb Ewan (Lotto-Soudal) to the line after 213.5km
Julian Alaphilippe (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) maintained his lead in the yellow jersey after his stunning stage three victory, with no significant changes in the general classification.
Here are six of the best pictures from stage four of the 2019 Tour de France.
