The Queen stage of the Saudi Tour did not disappoint. It was clear that Stage 4 as well as the GC would be decided on the steep Harrat Uwayrid climb, which included a 1-kilometre section with an average gradient of 16.5%. Ruben Guerreiro, Davide Formolo and Santiago Buitrago were the fastest up the steep ramps and were able to fend off the chase after the subsequent 8.5-kilometre false flat section. In his debut race for Movistar, Guerreiro was clearly in good shape and won the bunch sprint with a strong, calculated performance.
