Giro d’Italia 2013 – stage four: photo gallery

Bradley Wiggins’ bid for the Giro d’Italia title took a minor setback on stage four when the Tour de France champion lost 17 after being caught behind a crash on the run-in to the finish.

Enrico Battaglin (Bardiani Valvole-CSF Inox) won the 246km stage after outsprinting Fabio Felline (Androni) and Giovanni Visconti (Movistar).

Wiggins’ Sky team-mates led the peloton up the second of two late climbs in typically metronomic fashion but the 32-year-old slipped back through the group on the slippery descent to the finish.

Wiggins now lies sixth overall, 34 seconds behind race leader Luca Paolini (Katusha), on the same time as Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin-Sharp) and two seconds behind Vincenzo Nibali (Astana).

Here’s how the action unfolded through the lens of Stefano Sirotti.
