La Vuelta Stage 4 Profile

The 2023 La Vuelta Stage 4 starts from Andorra and a mostly downhill run towards the coastal Spanish town of Tarragona takes us to the finish line. A fast stage and a spring finish seem almost certain. The stage is 184.6 km (114.7 miles) long and the starting time is 12:20 GMT. Meanwhile, the  estimated finish time is 16:30 GMT.

Stage 4 profile

The stage is the first proper day for the sprinters.

The riders start from Andorra’s capital to leave the dwarf state and, subsequently, the Pyrenees. Steady, downhill takes them towards the Spanish coast. There are only 2 short climbs late in the stage. However, between them, they amount to less than 15km of climbing and most of that is not on a very steep gradient so the teams of the sprinters should be able to control the pace.

After the second climb, it’s fast downhill towards the finish in the coastal town of Tarragon.

Our Betting Tips and Predictions for La Vuelta Stage 4

With the 2023 La Vuelta now on its way, all eyes are on team Jumbo-Visma which contains the two main favourites for the overall win. However, many other riders have high aspirations and this first proper stage is an opportunity for some of those breakaway specialists to try and get a stage win.

Our Outright Prediction: Kaden Groves @ 11/10 (2.10)

There is a reason why Kaden Groves is a red-hot favourite to win the green jersey of this year’s La Vuelta. He is by far the fastest sprinter to take part at this year’s race and he has a team that can support him very well.

Groves had to wait patiently for 3 days and now when a terrain suitable for a sprinter has finally arrived we expect him to be decisive and do everything he has to do to secure the win and early lead in the green jersey classification.

Our Each-way Prediction: Alberto Dainese @ 1/4 (1.25)

If there is a sprinter that can steal the green jersey from Groves it will be the powerful Italian Alberto Dianese. His ability to accelerate near the finish line always makes him a contender in a sprint finish and even if he doesn’t win we can see him securing a top 3 position on stage 4.

Our Dark Horse Prediction: Andrea Vendrame @ 50/1 (51.00)

For our dark horse to win stage 4 we select the brave Andrea Vendrame. He is known among his colleague riders as the most reckless cyclist on downhills. Vendrame simply has no fear and never shies from risks when going down a hill.

With the stage 4 final run in a speedy downhill if by any chance Vendrame could open a lead and stay ahead of the train of sprinters he will be able to cause an upset. This is an unlikely scenario though as even Vendrame can’t withstand on his own for too long a strong team chasing him.

La Vuelta Stage 4 Odds

Now we’ve made our picks here are the odds for the top 10 favourites to win Stage 4:

Kaden Groves 11/10 (2.10)

Alberto Dainese 5/1 (6.00)

Juan S Molano 6/1 (7.00)

Marijn Van Den Berg 7.1 (8.00)

Bryan Coquard 10/1 (11.00)

Hugo Page 25/1 (26.00)

Ivan Garcia Cortina 25/1 (26.00)

Milan Menten 25/1 (26.00)

Andrea Vendrame 50/1 (51.00)

Edward Theuns 50/1 (51.00)

Our first 2 picks from above are the top 2 favourites according to the bookies and this only comes to cement our belief that the Stage 4 winner will be decided between Groves and Dainese.

Our dark horse pick Vendrame also sneaks into the top 10 favourites but as his odds suggest several things need to go in his favour if he is to grab the stage win.
