Russia’s Yury Trofimov made a solo break to win the fourth stage of the Criterium du Dauphine on Wednesday as Britain’s Chris Froome held the leader’s yellow jersey.

The Katusha team rider launched his attack 18km from the line on the Col de Manse, pulling ahead of a breakaway group formed on the 21km mark.

Swede Gustav Larsson crossed in second ahead of Dutch rider Pim Ligthart after the 167.5km run from Montelimar and Gap.

For 30-year-old Trofimov it was a second stage win in the Dauphine six years after that on Morzine.

Thursday’s fifth stage covers 189.5km from Sisteron to La Mure, and includes six climbs, the final one near Laffrey, 20km from the line.
