Kaden Groves of Alpecin-Deceuninck won stage four of the Vuelta after a high-speed uphill dash to the line in Tarragona. The Aussie overcame a strong effort from Juan Sebastián Molano (UAE-Team Emirates) in what was a chaotic battle through a series of city-centre bends that proved the undoing of some hopefuls.

The uphill gradient and narrow, sinuous parcours on the approach to the finish made this a sprint finish with a difference, and it was never going to be an out-and-out drag race.
