- The team did a very good job and my teammates helped me really well during the whole day, so I thank them for that. The final sprint was quite chaotic and nervous, everyone wanted to stay in front. It was quite dangerous. Perhaps, I started my sprint a bit later than I had to do it, so the Belgian rider passed me right before the finish. Anyway, I did my best today and I could be satisfied with the way I did this stage. As result I have a second place, but the main thing is today I felt much better than in the first two stages. On Sunday I will have another opportunity, so I will try to fight for a win, - said Riccardo Minali.
- By my opinion, Riccardo did a very good sprint and he could not do something more. The rider who won was just a bit better today. We still have two days here in Denmark and in both stages we have chances to get a nice result, - added sports director Lars Michaelsen.
After the third stage the Belgian rider Wout Van Aert still leads the general classification, while Astana’s Hugo Houle moved up to 8th place (+0.21).
The individual time trial of 19,1 km in Nykøbing Falster will be held tomorrow as stage 4 of the Tour of Denmark.
