Stage 4 of the Women’s Tour of New Zealand had the USA National Team use the heavy crosswind to make separation.  They were successful and caused the field to break into three groups. Nine women made it clear to the front break.

DNA fought to defend the white jersey held by Gabrielle Pilote-Fortin, but missed the break and drilled it the rest of the day to close the gap. Ellen Skerritt, U23 rider was in the front group that stayed away. She would take the youngest rider jersey for Stage 4.

On admiral hill it was down to riders for the sprint to the top of the hill.

Tayler Wiles (USA) took the win and the yellow jersey.
