A breakaway inside the final 4km circuit of stage 4 split the peloton and caused a shake up in the General Classifcation at Tour de Bretagne.

Fabian Lienhard finished with the chasing group in 12th place and now sits fourth on the General Classification, 13 seconds behind stage winner and new race leader Adrien Costa (USA Cycling U23 Men).

Earlier in the race, Welten was caught up in a crash within the peloton and was forced to stop racing.

Bram Welten Medical Update

Dr Major: “Bram has broken his collarbone but it is not displaced and will not require surgery. He also has an injury to his lumbar but there is no fracture to any vertebrae. Bram will be off the bike for two weeks recovery and then we will asses the situation before he goes back to training. Bram could plan to be racing again in four-six weeks.”
