Ackermann wins Tour of Guangxi third stage

SHARE

After narrowly missing out the first two stages, Pascal Ackermann (Bora-hansgrohe) powered to victory in Nanning to claim stage 3 at Tour of Guangxi.

Alexandr Riabushenko (UAE Team Emirates) finished in second place, while Matteo Trentin (Mitchelton-Scott) took third place for the third day in a row.

“We wanted to come here to win a stage, and now we’ve achieved that,” said Ackermann. “After my two second places on the first few stages, I feel less pressure now that I’ve taken a win here.”

Sunday’s stage finishes with a climb to the line and so the GC is likely to shake up as the sprinters cool their jets.
