There was panic in the field right after the start of Stage 4 after Tamás Lengyel, the best placed Hungarian cyclist, crashed. The end of the stage was problematic as well because it was raining hard, and - as the last part was a long descent - it could have been life threatening, therefore race director Tamás Gayer decided to change the finish. The winner was Udo Müller, and yellow jersey was maintained by Zoltán Remák.

The field did two loops in Karcag, where the fourth stage of Tour de Hongrie started, and a crash happened right on the first lap: the best placed Hungarian cyclist, Tamás Lengyel was involved and he had to abandon the race and be taken to the nearest hospital.

The weather was varied: rain and sun came right after each other, and as it was raining hard in Bükk, the race director decided to shorten the distance to 166 kilometres instead of the originally planned 180, and finish in Bükksztentkereszt.

The decision was communicated to team leaders via their radios. Until that time, a big breakaway had been maintaining an advantage, but the peloton caught them at the finish. Udo Müller (Germany) won the stage ahead of Robert Glajza (Slovakia) and Aurél Víg (Hungarian national champion). Race leader Zoltán Remák finished in the peloton, and kept the yellow jersey after the fifth day.
