The third stage of Tour of Belgium held today at the roads of Grimbergen. It was 9,2 km-long individual time trial with almost flat route, won by Belgium rider Tim Wellens.
Fastest Astana Pro Team rider was current Kazakhstan and Asian ITT champion Daniil Fominykh, crossing the finish line in 11:20”, 34 seconds behind the stage winner.
- It was a short stage and very high-speed race with a small climb at the finish, and 200 meters of cobbles at the end, so, generally, the route was not hard. Fast day with a very good weather, with almost no wind, as the race held inside the city roads. In general, I feel good, tomorrow is an interesting stage around Liege with a very hard route, hope, that it will be good weather tomorrow, let’s see, - said Daniil Fominykh after the finish.
