By Karen Lambrecht

Stage 4: Houffalize-Aubel 189.3 km

Julian Dean won the fourth stage in the Tour du Région Wallonne.

Between Houffalize and Aubel, there were a lot of attacks. After km 60, there was a breakaway with Julich, Joachim, Bruylandts, Thijs, Boonen, Kern and Berges. The group was caught by the peloton before the finish line. In the sprint, Julian Dean beat Emmanuel Magnien and David Kopp.

Michele Bartoli is still leader. With one stage remaining, this race is very close, with only 19 seconds separating the top ten riders on GC.
