Rajablou wins climbing stage, Shorabi takes lead in Tour of Japan

by CyclingTips

Mohammad Rajablou (Pishgaman Giant Team) won the fourth stage of the Tour of Japan just ahead of Mehdi Tabriz Sohrabi (Shahrdari).

Sohrabi was clearly less interested in the stage win as Rajablou since the time gap he made on the rest of the field gives him the overall lead. He now has 40 seconds on previous leader Anthony Giacoppo (Avanti IsoWhey Sport).

The Iranian duo broke away from the peloton on the final time up the KOM of the circuit course, one lap before the finish. They held a nearly two minute lead at the KOM point and had enough of a gap to make it up again for the finish.

Daniel Jaramillo (UnitedHealthcare) led the peloton in with third place, and takes over the best young rider jersey.

Jaramillo was active all day as part of the four-rider early breakaway.
