Team LottoNL-Jumbo aims at team time trial after bunch sprint in the Tour of Britain

Team LottoNL-Jumbo came through the Tour of Britain's fourth stage without problems and looking to the team time trial tomorrow. The stage ended in a bunch sprint and Primoz Roglic remained eighth overall at 12 seconds from overall leader Patrick Bevin.

"A breakaway got established quite quickly, which was kept under control by the sprinters' teams," said Sports Director Jan Boven. "So it became clear quite quickly that it was going to end in a sprint finish. Without a sprinter, you know that it will be difficult to get a result."

Tomorrow is an important day for the general classification. The fifth stage is a 14-kilometre team time trial. 

"It is a special team time trial," Boven added. "The first part is flat and the last part is uphill. It is going to be a challenge to work well together. The boys are all in a good shape, so we certainly can have ambitions. Koen is still not 100 per cent after his crash, but he is getting better every day."
