Tour of Guangxi – Stage four: Nanning – Nongla Scenic Arena, 161.4km

Diego Rosa put in an impressive ride to take third place on the queen stage of the Tour of Guangxi.
 
Riding his last race for the team, the Italian dug deep on the tough final climb, riding out of the pack and across the gap inside the final kilometre of stage four.

Crossing the line just eight seconds behind stage winner Enric Mas (Deceuninck-Quick-Step), Rosa also holds third on the general classification, 14 seconds back with two stages to go.
 
David de la Cruz was also up there in a select lead group, finishing in eighth place amongst a small group of riders, 19 seconds back.
 
The Team INEOS duo were placed into a great position by their teammates with 4km to go, at which point the bunch detonated on the early slopes of the climb.
