Lidl-Trek sprinter Jonathan Milan dashed to victory in a tough uphill finale on stage four of Tirreno-Adriatico.

Stomping through a big gear, and still seated in the saddle, the Italian beat Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin-Deceuninck) on the bike throw, with Corbin Strong (Israel-Premier Tech) finishing third. The sprinters spoiled the parade of Jonas Abrahamsen (Uno-X), who almost lasted to the line as the only remnant of the day's early breakaway.
