Italy’s Matteo Trentin sprinted to victory on stage four of the Vuelta a Espana as Britain’s Chris Froome retained the leader’s red jersey.

Quick-Step rider Trentin reeled in and surged past Spain’s Juan Jose Lobato to claim his fourth Grand Tour stage win, with Belgium’s Tom van Asbroeck third.

Four-time Tour de France champion Froome finished safely in the bunch.

The Team Sky rider, 32, still leads David de la Cruz, Nicolas Roche and Tejay van Garderen by two seconds.

Froome is aiming to become only the third rider to win the Tour and the Vuelta in the same year.

Trentin, 28, has now won a stage in all three Grand Tours, adding to victory at the 2016 Giro d’Italia and wins in the 2013 and 2014 Tours de France.

“I’m really proud to have done this with this team,” said Trentin.

“I was really looking for this stage win as I’ve been going well in the last part of the season.”

Quick-Step Floors have won two of the four stages of this year’s Vuelta, following Yves Lampaert’s victory on stage two.
