Route du Sud : stage win for Manuel Belletti

Manuel Belletti won the 4th stage of the Route du Sud in a sprint. This is the 8th victory for the Italian rider since he turned professional. He also wins the jersey "hot spots".
The stage had previously been led by a 13 riders breakaway in which was Blel Kadri who is crowned the best climber in this race.
The escapees have been caught by the bunch with three kilometers from the finish. The AG2R LA MONDIALE took things in hand ahead of the pack and brought perfectly his “home-sprinter”.

Manuel Belletti shared his thoughts on his victory after he crossed the finish line: “I’m so glad to get my first win this season and my first success with the AG2R LA MONDIALE jersey! Today I have to thank the entire team that worked a lot for me. Jimmy (Casper) has done a tremendous job in the final part in order to put myself in the best position as possible. It really was a perfect day! I will now compete in the Italian Road Race Championship. This year, the course is very hard and my role will be to best support Rinaldo (Nocentini) and Matteo (Montaguti). "
