Britain's Steve Cummings moved into the overall lead of the Tour Méditerranéen by winning the stage four time trial in Saint Remy de Provence, France.

BMC rider Cummings, 32, navigated an undulating, 18.2km course in a time of 24min 27sec, four seconds faster than runner-up Riccardo Zoidl (Trek Factory Racing) and ten seconds quicker than third-placed Sylvain Chavanel (IAM Cycling).

He now leads the same two men by the same margins in the general classification going into Sunday's final day, a 192.7km mountain stage ending with a summit finish on Mont Faron in Toulon.

Germany's John Degenkolb (Giant-Shimano) won all of the first three stages.
