In the end, it did not look like Lennard Kämna and Juan Pedro López were agreed on much, let alone who would win stage four of the Giro d'Italia. Swinging into the final corner, Kämna was fully committed to going for victory, but so was López. Unfortunately for the latter, he misjudged the line, almost clipping his rival's back wheel, a move which gifted the German triumph on Etna.

Of course, López claims the pink jersey, some consolation prize, but the 24-year-old did not seem satisfied with this immediately post race. He looked like he had just missed out on his maiden professional win by metres, which he had.
