Prior to this, this third stage of the Tour of Norway was classified as the Queen stage. The peloton had to overcome three difficult climbs and the last climb was a killer 12-kilometer climb with an average of 8%.

RYMCO EVENBUIL He only had one mission today. Bring back the captain’s shirt. That’s what the Belgian did. On the last climb, he wore gear and in this way he was able to unleash all his rivals. The Norwegian Johansen, who wore the leader’s shirt today, had to pass very quickly.

Plapp and Vine could only keep up with the pace of Evenepoel’s release for a while. However, the two Australians refused to take the reins and had to launch the Evenball wheel a few hundred meters away.

Evenepoel steamed towards the end and eventually arrived half a minute before Vine. Papp comes in third place. Other young Belgians also made a positive impression. Cian Uijtdebroeks and Laurens Huys finished fifth and sixth.

In the general classification, Remco Evenepoel now leads Jay Vine by 46 seconds. Luke Plapp came third at 1’24”. Thanks to the strong ride today, Huys and Uijtdebroeks also took the top ten.

Remko Evenpoel doesn’t brag after his impressive win uphill. “I took advantage of the wind to make it difficult for the other players (Blub and Vine).”

“I’m still not really sure, so I just kicked the ball as hard as I could to get as much progress as possible. It was a hard effort.”

Evenepoel is now 46 seconds ahead of Vine, but doesn’t consider himself rich yet. “It’s true that I have a pretty big lead, but those local laps in this Norway Tour are always tricky. Of course it’s better to be on top.”
