Bahrain Victorious’ Williams leads Andreas Kron of Lotto Soudal by six seconds, with Ineos Grenadiers’ Geraint Thomas seven seconds behind in third.

Williams was initially dropped from the peloton on the final climb of the stage, but paced by team-mates managed to regain contact with the bunch and finished in the 60-rider front group, while his fellow Welshman Thomas climbed into the podium places after improving his fourth overall position from stage three.

But the day belonged to Israel-Premier Tech rider Impey, who proved he was able to win again after a nasty high-speed sprint crash exactly one year ago which forced him to miss the Tokyo Olympics.

The race’s most demanding days remain ahead, with four more stages to come before the finish on Sunday, 19 June.
