After 2 stages for the sprinters, the 3rd stage to Przemysl offers the punchers a first chance. Or can a refugee group stay ahead?

  1. 3 p.m. 54. Vansevenant. In the peloton, Mauri Vansevenant thinks about anticipation. With Davide Formolo, among others, he goes in search of the lonely German leader, who is of course a bird for the cat.  .
  2. 15h46. Michel Hessmann tries his best, but his bonus melts away on the Polish calf biters. Heavyweights like Mark Cavendish are released in the peloton.  .
  3. 15 hours 39. 33 kilometers to go. The German Michel Hessmann has decimated the leading group. Only Edward Theuns seems to be able to follow the Jumbo rider for the time being.  .
  4. 15 hours 16. Another 50 kilometers and the five still save 2’51”. In the peloton, UAE, Bora-Hansgrohe and Ineos are driving. An acceleration by Thomas De Gendt evaporated very quickly.  .
  5. 13 hours 58. In the peloton they have loosened the reins a little more, or Theuns, Hessmann, Brändle, Brozyna and Budzinski would be caught up too quickly. Now the 5 still have 2 minutes. With more than 100 kilometers on the clock it seems to be a difficult story. Plus, the treats are at the very end of the ride, with 4 short climbs. .
  6. 13 hours 11. We are already 2 hours on the road and the course of the course has not changed significantly. The lead of the 5 continues to decrease, to 3 minutes. The riders are gradually approaching the 100 kilometer sign, but we are not yet halfway there. With 238 kilometers this is one of the longer stages in a stage race of the season. .
  7. 12 o’clock 18. Lead dwindling. Theuns and his companions are gradually starting to shed their feathers. It was once more than 7 minutes, now they only have about five minutes left. In addition to Lotto-Soudal, the peloton also has strong blocks such as Ineos, Bora-Hansgrohe and UAE. .
  8. 11 hours 39. Theuns in the flight of the day. Edward Theuns apparently felt his legs itch this morning and so he left with 4 colleagues: the Poles Brozyna and Budzinski, the Austrian Brändle and the German Hessmann. In the peloton they don’t pay much attention to the flight and so Theuns and co immediately have a lead of more than 7 minutes. .
