Team Sunweb's Soren Kragh Andersen has taken the win of the individual time trial at Paris-Nice while Max Schachmann managed to remain in the first place of the General Classification.

The fourth stage of the French race was an individual time trial of 15.1 kilometres in Saint-Amand-Montrond. One of the first riders to set a competitive time was Lotto-Soudal's Thomas De Gendt, who stopped the clock in 19 minutes and four seconds.

NTT Pro Cycling's Victor Campenaerts and Bahrain McLaren's Pello Bilbao were close to set the best time, but were some seconds slower than De Gendt. Soon after, Kasper Asgreen (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) moved the Belgian out of the hot seat with a time of 19 minutes and three seconds.

But the time of the winner of the 2020 Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne at the top of the classification of the fight against the clock was not long as soon after his fellow countryman Soren Kragh Andersen (Sunweb) set a time of 18 minutes and 51 seconds. The leader of the General Classification Max Schachmann rode fast and completed the course in 18 minutes and 57 seconds, taking the second position of the day and staying as such at the top of the overall standing.

The winner of the stage climbed to the second position of the General Classification, while Bora-hansgrohe's Felix Grossschartner is now in the third place, Nils Politt (Israel Start-Up Nation) is fourth and Sergio Higuita (EF Pro Cycling) remains in the fifth position.
