Lennard Kämna showcased amazing talent and skills as he rode to victory during stage four of the Giro d’Italia. The German is known for his climbing skills, although it was speculation before, this time he showed everyone how it is done by ascending Mount Etna to claim victory. Including the Giro win, this is Lennard’s second Grand Tour Win.

During the last stretch of stage 4, things started heating up, especially during the final 13km. Juan Pedro López (Trek-Segafredo) was leading the overall victory, and simultaneously was also countering attacks from Stefano Oldani (Alpecin-Fenix). However, no matter how hard they tried, they were no match for Lennard and his tactics.

With their fight going on, Lennard caught both the riders and dominated them with fascinating speed. One false turn from Juan López basically handed the entire stage victory to Lennard, it made the whole situation very easy for the German. That does not mean that Lopez is in trouble, in fact, with his performance he is now leading the GC rankings. As a result of his amazing performance, he will now be wearing the pink jersey during stage five.

Lennard also got to share the podium with Rein Taaramäe (Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux) who finished third. Although he was dropped halfway up Mount Etna, he made it back behind the group and finished thirty seconds behind the leading group, which was commendable to say the least.

For the fourth stage, Giro d’Italia came back to Italian soil. With that being said, the stage was far from easy as riders had to face a very hard 172km mountainous route which started from Avola and ended in Etna, Sicily.
