HÀ NỘI — Loic Desriac of Bike Life Đồng Nai triumphed in the fourth stage of the International Cycling Tournament, the VTV- Tôn Hoa Sen Cup Wednesday morning.

Yellow jersey holder Jordan Parra of Bike Life Đồng Nai failed to make the top 10 after suffering a puncture around 2km in. So Desriac stole the yellow jersey from his teammate Parra in this stage.
However, Parra still held the green jersey as the best sprinter.
