Spaniard Julian Sanchez (Contentpolis-AMPO) won the fourth stage of the Volta a Catalunya today that traveled from La Pobla de Lillet and the ski resort of Vallnord. Sanchez was the only rider of 8 early breakaways to survive.

Today's queen stage was played out by the GC contenders close behind as young Irishman Daniel Martin (Garmin-Slipstream) tried to escape Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d'Epargne) with an attack on the final climb. But with help from his team Martin's damage was neutralized with him finishing second 6 seconds off of the winner, and Valverde just 2 seconds behind.
