Cannondale-Drapac's Tom Scully has won the last stage of the Route du Sud. The overall victory went to Silvan Dillier (BMC).

The fourth stage of the French race was 154.8 kilometers between Gers-Astarac Arros en Gascogne and Nogaro. The profile of the day included two climbs of the third category to finish on a flat stretch at the Racing Circuit Paul Armagnac.

Scully was part of the breakaway from the beginning. The New Zealander escaped along with riders like Clement Chevrier (AG2R-La Mondiale) and Nikita Stalnov (Astana) and managed to create a gap of more than two minutes with the peloton.

Even though the pack was pulled by teams with good sprinters like Sky, Direct Energie and Movistar, it was not enough to catch the escapees, who crossed the finish line seconds before the first of the peloton: Elia Viviani (Sky).

Scully launched himself first in the sprint and showed to have better legs than his escape companions. Mathias Le Turnier (Cofidis), Jerome Mainard (Armee de Terre), Stalnov and Kevin Ledanois (Fortuneo-Vital Concept) completed the top five of the stage.

Dillier finished first in the General Classification standings, seven seconds ahead of Richard Carapaz (Movistar). Kenny Elissonde (Sky) was the third rider on the race's podium.

Apart from winning the overall classification, Dillier also tops the standings of the mountains classification.
