Bouhanni bounces back to win stage four of Paris-Nice

by Shane Stokes

Relegated after reaching the line first on stage two due to a clash with Michael Matthews, Nacer Bouhanni made no mistakes on Thursday’s fourth stage of the race. The Frenchman sped home ahead of Edward Theuns (Trek-Segafredo), André Greipel (Lotto Soudal), Alexander Kristoff (Team Katusha) and the rest of the peloton, winning into Romans-sur-Isère.

“My teammates did a fantastic job,” he said afterwards. “There were still four of them with me in the finale. I was a little bit revengeful after my disqualification. It was at the back of my mind. I had been disappointed so far.

“In the first sprint, Arnaud (Demare) had outwitted us. The next day I was disqualified. That’s sport. We all want to win stages. I’m really glad to have won especially after the work done by my team-mates. My form is growing little by little and Paris-Nice is the ideal preparation for my big objective, which is Milan-San Remo.”

The 193.5 kilometre stage saw an early attack from French favourite Thomas Voeckler (Direct Energie), who was joined by Florian Vachon (Fortuneo Vital Concept), Matt Brammeier (Dimension Data) and Evaldas Siskevicius (Delko Marseille Provence) in the day’s break.

Voeckler then pushed on alone inside the final hour of racing, attacking on the category 2 Côte de Saint-Uze He was caught and then dropped by team-mate Sylvain Chavanel, Sep Vanmarcke (LottoNL-Jumbo) and Delio Fernández Cruz of Deklo Marseille Provence KTM, but they too were reeled in before the sprint finale.
