SALT LAKE CITY — Jake Keough broke free during a late sprint to win the fourth stage of the Tour of Utah on Friday, while fellow American Christian Vandevelde retained the overall lead.
Keough finished the 134.3-mile stage in 4 hours 47 minutes, 6 seconds. Italy's Marco Benfatto was second, and U.S. rider Tyler Farrar finished third.
Vandevelde had a 3-second lead over Thomas Danielson. David Zabriskie was third, also 3 seconds behind.
A group of six riders broke from the peloton just seven miles into stage. The group featured Yann Huguet, Craig Lewis, Jasper Stuyven, Peter Velits, Jeremy Vennell and Thomas Leezer. They led by as much as 10 minutes before the peloton finally gave chase over the final few miles. The peloton didn't catch the six riders until inside the final mile, setting up for an exciting sprint to the finish.
The fifth stage Saturday is a 102-mile leg that begins in Park City and cuts through four counties before finishing at Snowbird Ski Resort just outside Salt Lake City.
