Greg Van Avermaet Sunday as the fourth stage in the Tour of Yorkshire won. For the Belgian leader of CCC, it was still only his second victory of the season. Saturday, he finished third.
Van Avermaet took it after 175 miles between the takeoff location Halifax, and the arrival in Leeds for the British champion Chris Lawless and the Irish Eddie Dunbar (both from INEOS). Jenthe Biermans (Katusha) was at twelve seconds, ninth. The second place was enough for Lawless to the gc on bag to put. Van Avermaet was second in the final reckoning.
It is for the 33-year-old Van Avermaet his second victory of the season. In early February, he won also a stage in the Tour of Valencia (2.1).
