Vande Velde Wins Stage 4 of Paris-Nice on Zipp 202s

With 20 kilometers to go in today’s 173.5-kilometer stage, Christian Vande Velde attacked his breakaway group and rode to a solid, solo win at Paris-Nice! Off the front with a seven-man break for more than 100 kilometers, Christian’s strong move left his break-mates standing still as he finished with a 14-second gap on second place.

“After my crash during Sunday’s prologue, I told myself that the best way to avoid any other problems would be to ride at the front,” Christian told L’Equipe after his win today in Saint Etienne.

We recently spoke with Christian in ZippCast #64.
