New leader but same team and bike: Mike Teunissen inherited from teammate Dylan Groenewegen the 4 Jours de Dunkerque / Grand Prix des Hauts de France leader's jersey riding Oltre XR4 to third in the stage 4, 179,8 km from Fort Mahon Plage to Le Portel, on Friday, May 17th. Part of the 13-man leading group after Saint Etienne au Mont's third climbing, the Team Jumbo-Visma 26-year-old Dutchman completed the stage in the wake of French Bryan Coquard and Clément Venturini.
Fourth placed before the stage 4 start, Teunissen came then to the GC top with a 4-second advantage on Belgian Jens Keukeleire and 5 seconds on French Anthony Turgis. Teunissen's teammates Amund Grøndahl Jansen and Dylan Groenewegen are now 5th and 14th respectively. Winner of three stages so far, Groenewegen goes on leading the Points Classification ahead of Teunissen himself, whilst Team Jumbo-Visma rules in the Teams Classification.
Mike Teunissen is equipped with Bianchi Oltre XR4. Engineered with the Bianchi CV system powered by Countervail, developed and tested in cooperation with World Tour Team Jumbo-Visma, Oltre XR4 is designed to maximize the aerodynamic advantage and control.
