Groenewegen, who also won the first and third stages, finished ahead of Britain's Matt Walls and Trentin after a sprint finish through Birkenhead Park in the Wirral.

Trentin's four-second time bonus for finishing third was enough to put the Mitchelton-Scott rider back into the leader's green jersey, three seconds ahead of Dutch rider Mathieu van der Poel with Belgium's Jasper De Buyst in third, 10 seconds back.

Thursday's sixth stage could decide the outcome of the race with a 14.4 kilometre time trial around Pershore offering plenty of scope for changes in the general classification.

This weekend, racers in Europe and North and South America converged for Continental Championship racing. In Italy, Puck Pieterse from The Netherlands took the Junior Women's title while Thibau Nys (yes, son of legendary racer Sven Nys) took the Junior Men's race. In the U23 fields, Frenchman Mickaël Crispin and Belgian Ceylin del Carmen Alvarado took the titles. And in the men's race, no one was surprised to see Mathieu Van der Poel of The Netherlands defend his title for a third year, while Dutch racer Yara Kastelijn was the winner in the women's field.

Becca Fahringer rounded out the women's podium. In the men's race, Kerry Werner took his first title jersey with the win over defending champion Curtis White.

The fourth round of the 2019-2020 Telenet Superprestige played out on the fields of Ruddervoorde this past Sunday. The big story of the race was Mathieu van der Poel's return to cyclocross. The world champion skipped the opening race of the DVV Trofee in an effort to test his early season form on a slightly more docile course.
