Jumbo-Visma continue to play pass the parcel with the red jersey. They deliberately gave it to Robert Gesink as the first rider across the line in their TTT victory, then they let Mike Teunissen sprint to take the overall lead yesterday (it’s based on stage placings when riders are tied on time. And now it’s the turn of Edoardo Affini. Teunissen did not sprint, instead working for his team before making sure he slipped well down, to 153rd place. Affini finished 20th and is our new overall leader.

Let’s hear from the winner

"It was quite hard because a lot of people were fighting for our wheel. It was just the natural flow that people went up the side and squeezed me off, so there were a few tough moments to hold Danny’s wheel. It was a hard fight.

"The boys again… what can I say? Jonas [Koch] was riding all day – a big thank you for the commitment. Then the boys looking after me in the bunch all day. In the final, Jonas, even though he was riding all day, came back and gave a big turn. Then Ryan kept us up there, taking so much wind. Then Danny… it was a masterclass.".08:15:48 Results Spain | 3rd stage08:11:12The […]
