EDEN — Defending champion Tom Danielson dropped Chris Horner in the final miles Thursday and easily won the fourth stage of the Tour of Utah to take the overall race lead.
After his Garmin-Sharp team put him in position at the base of Powder Mountain, Danielson showed his climbing legs on the roughly 6-mile ascent to the finish. He crossed the finish line with a 56-second lead over Ben Hermans and another second over Horner.
Those three riders now lead the overall standings with three stages remaining.
The fifth stage Friday takes riders into Wyoming for the first time in the 10-year history of the race. The 102-mile trek includes a long stretch of dirt road near the finish in Kamas, with the winner likely to be decided in a sprint.
