A big breakaway of 33 riders has put an end to the possibility of winning the Tour de Bretagne for race favourites Lars Boom, Coen Vermeltfoort, David Le Lay and Alexander Kristoff, but Rabobank might have done the right choice with Thomas Berkhout and Marcel Beima in an escape from which French amateur Julien Antomarchi of VC La Pomme took stage 4 and the lead.

"We would have liked to have one or two more riders in the front group," former race leader Vermeltfoort said. He didn't bring a message of real satisfaction from the Rabobank camp. "Now we'll protect Berkhout and Beima before the time trial on Wednesday," the young Dutchman added. It might be a better day than it looks like for Rabobank because they don't have to worry about Le Lay and Kristoff anymore. They have a major card to play against the clock with Berkhout but it will be interesting to see New Zealand time trial champion Logan Hutchings in action. He also found his way to the right move between Guingamp and Lesneven.

"I will try to keep the jersey until the end," new leader Antomarchi said. The 24 year-old from Marseille was fifth in the U23 French championship time trial, but he doesn't have many international references against the clock. He won a stage in the Three Days of Vaucluse in March this year. "I came to the Tour de Bretagne for at least winning a stage as well," he explained. "This is one of the biggest races in France for us. We don't have many opportunities to compete at that level. It's a chance to be noticed for someone like me who tries to turn professional."

He was smart to let the two Rabobank riders close some gaps in the finale before he found an open space and went solo with only seven kilometres to go. But the overall win remains a possibility for about 30 competitors.

All the climbs in stage 4 were concentrated in the first 60 kilometres, so it wasn't a surprise to see early attacks. Rolf Hofbauer (Ista), Olivier Nari (SCO Dijon) and Romain Hardy (Côtes d'Armor-Maître Jacques) tried their luck between km 12 and 24.

The decisive breakaway took shape in the second King of the Mountain price after 35 kilometres. In two waves, it included 33 riders: Thomas Berkhout and Marcel Beima (Rabobank), Stian Sommerseth (Joker-Bianchi), Piotr Zielinski, Sébastien Duret and Benoît Poilvet (Bretagne-Armor Lux), Erik Jan Kooiman (Van Hemert), Logan Hutchings and Gert Dockx (Beveren), Fabrice Jeandesbosz (Vendée U), Nico Keinath, Christoph Meschenmoser and Tim Klotz (Ista), Sven Vandousselaere (Davitamon-Lotto), Yoann Lucas and Jean-Philippe Maheau (U Nantes-Atlantique), Olivier Grammaire (SCO Dijon), Julien Antomarchi and David Tanner (VC La Pomme), Justas Volongevicius (Rietumu Bank), Jean-Marc Bideau, Bastien Delrot, Florian Guillou and Steven Tronet (VC Roubaix), Laurent Le Gac (Brest IC 2000), Yann Guyot and Mathieu Halléguen (Côtes d'Armor-Maître Jacques), Bram Schmitz and Johnny Hoogerland (Van Vliet), Franck Charrier (CC Nogent-sur-Oise), Yukiya Arashiro, Takashi Miyazawa and Miyataka Shimizu (Meitan-Hompo).

As 18 teams out of 22 were represented in the front, nobody in the bunch took care of the chase and the gap went up to a maximum lead of just above 18 minutes. In the front, Charrier tried to go solo a few times before the final circuit. When other riders joined him, the two Rabobank riders closed the gap, but they couldn't prevent Antomarchi from going clear with seven kilometres to go. The Frenchman won with 13 seconds and took the lead.
