BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Colombian Janier Acevedo took the win in Stage 4 of the USA Pro Challenge on Thursday, crossing the finish line during a downpour in Beaver Creek Village just in front of American Tejay van Garderen.
Van Garderen, of the BMC Racing Team, now has the yellow jersey as the leader of the general classification.
Acevedo, of team Jamis-Hagens Berman, and van Garderen broke ahead of the lead pack on the ascent to the top of Bachelor Gulch and stayed in front down on the slick descent to the bottom of the hill. They rode together back up to the finish line on Village Road near the Covered Bridge.
Tom Danielson and Mathias Frank were among the lead group as it attacked the steep slopes of Bachelor Gulch, but they were dropped on the unforgiving course.
The day started in Steamboat Springs for the 103-mile Queen Stage.
