Italy's Elia Viviani was too fast for any of the other top speedsters in a classic 70 kilometer per hour bunch sprint at the end of the fourth stage of the Tour de France in Nancy Tuesday. The Deceuninck-Quick Step rider won the dash for the line after he was led out by teammate Julian Alaphilippe, the overall race leader and first Frenchman to don the leader's yellow jersey in five years. Viviani edged Alexander Kristoff and Caleb Ewan, who were second and third on a 1.5 kilometer home straight with all the top sprinters and their lead-off trains, who were active over a nervy finale.Alaphilippe was the toast of the Tour Tuesday as fans all along the route shouted "Juju," his nickname, as he rode by in the yellow jersey he won the day before with a swashbuckling 15-kilometer attack in the third stage.
