Giro d’Italia 2023 Race page Race Notes
– Stage 3 was a 213km ride south from Vasto to Melfi, with two climbs and a rolling finale.
– Veljko Stojnić (Corratec – Selle Italia) and Alexander Konychev (Corratec – Selle Italia) attacked from the start and the peloton let them go.
– The two opened a 7:00 lead but the peloton then organised a chase with riders from Alpecin-Deceuninck, Jayco-AlUla, Eolo-Kometa and Trek-Segafredo leading the peloton.- Thanks to the work of the other teams, race leader Remco Evenepoel and his Soudal-QuickStep teammates avoided doing any work on the front of the peloton.- The peloton caught the break on the first climb and then Jayco set a high pace to shake-out the group. Most of the sprinters were distanced, with crashes and tension causing other problems and reducing the group to 40 riders.- Trek-Segafredo took over the leadout but Matthews jumped first and held on to beat Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) and Kaden Groves (Alpecin-Deceuninck).
