IAM played a key role in chasing down the early break in the Tour of Britain as they wanted to set Sylvain Chavanel up for a stage win. However, the Frenchman was unable to follow the best on the final climb.


Michal Kwiatowski (Omega Pharma-Quickstep) confirmed his current good form.  Having already taken second place yesterday at the 2014 Tour of Britain’s first summit finish, Kwiatowski won the 4th stage with authority and as a result claimed the leader’s yellow jersey. 


IAM Cycling contributed its best efforts to the day, demonstrating its strength more than once to control the breakaway.  Still in contention for the overall victory, Sylvain Chavanel finished the stage in 10thplace having ceded six seconds, with Kevyn Ista (26th) and Sébastien Reichenbach (38th) in the same time. 


Reichenbach retained his 9th place overall, 29 seconds back, while Chavanel moved up to 10th place, 45 seconds behind the new leader.
Matthias Brändle, who specializes at time trials as well as joining breakaways, spent much of today on the front of the peloton helping to control the break that was threatening to stay away. 


“As Omega declined to take the race in hand, we took it upon ourselves to shut the break down with 30 kilometers to go to the finish.  Jérôme Pineau and I worked to bring the group back since Sylvain had a mind to try and go for the stage win.  Then Heinrich Haussler, Kevyn Ista and Sébastien Reichenbach went to work on the front of the bunch on the last climb in order to have the best position and help as much as possible.  It was not enough for the win today, but I’m sure we still have every chance.”  
For Eddy Seigneur, one of the directeurs sportifs for IAM Cycling along with Kjell Carlström, the Tour of Britain demands even more solidarity from a team than usual. 


“Each team is only made up of six riders.  The roads are very narrow, so it is important always to be well positioned.  Today we did not take part in the break. 


"We started to ride in order to control the race and put Sylvain in a good position before the climb that happened with 2 kilometers to go.  Everyone did his work well, but we would like definitely to win at least one stage.”
