Richard Carapaz held off Caleb Ewan to win stage fourBritain's Simon Yates limited his losses to Giro d'Italia leader Primoz Roglic after crashes split the race in a dramatic finale to stage four.Roglic made it into a small front group following a series of crashes with 6km to go before Ecuador's Richard Carapaz attacked late on to win in Frascati.Yates was brought down in the last crash but chased back to lose only 16 seconds to Roglic and stay in second.
Tom Dumoulin, the 2017 champion, fell heavily and finished four minutes down."Everyone was fighting for position on a roundabout with 6km to go and a rider slid out in front of me," Mitchelton-Scott rider Yates told Eurosport."I'm not blaming anyone, these things happen, but I got up quickly and had the guys around me to limit the losses."My hip is sore, my left hand side is really, but I'm OK - it's always worse in the morning so we'll see but the Giro is long."Yates is now 35 seconds down on Slovenian Roglic in the overall standings, with Italian Vincenzo Nibali four seconds back in third.Stage four results1.
