Larry H. Miller Tour of Utah
Stage 4: Salt Lake City Circuit - Stage Details

Michael Matthews won a fiercely fought uphill battle to the line in Salt Lake City to take out stage four of the Tour of Utah. The young Australian finished off the work of his teammates who had fully committed to delivering Matthews to the top step of the podium.

The victory marks Matthews second win and third podium this week and the second victory of his career in Utah’s capital city. It is the 100th victory for the GreenEDGE family since the team’s inception with 62 wins from ORICA-GreenEDGE and 38 wins from ORICA-AIS.

The boys did exactly what we said we wanted to do. They did a perfect job tonight. We couldn’t have asked for much more out of this race. We’ve got two stage wins and three top threes. We’re all pretty happy with the way things have gone.” - Michael Matthews

“With only five guys in the race, it was very hard to organise a lead-out. We had to commit three guys to controlling the breakaway, which basically left only Cookie [Baden Cooke] to help Matthews in the sprint. They did an amazing job today. For four guys to do what they did is incredible.” - Sport Director Matt Wilson
