BEAVER CREEK, Colo. (AP) — Janier Acevedo of Colombia won the hilly and rainy fourth stage of the USA Pro Challenge on Thursday, and Tejay van Garderen finished second to take the overall lead.

Acevedo, riding for Jamis-Hagens Berman, completed the 102.9-mile stage from Breckenride to Beaver Creek in heavy rain in 4 hours, 9 minutes, 8 seconds.

Van Garderen, the American BMC rider who began the day in fourth place, conceded the stage win to the Colombian but was given the same finishing time.

Van Garden took a 4-second lead over teammate Mathias Frank of Switzerland. Frank finished third in the stage, 13 seconds behind.
