Groenewegen crashes but still wins stage 3 of the Volta Valenciana

Dylan Groenewegen (Jumbo-Visma) won the third stage of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana.

The Dutchman went down in a crash at 30km to go. However, his Jumbo-Visma team was able to safely escort him back into the group, where he took the win in bunch sprint to the line.

“It was an easy day but in the finale I crashed at around 30km from the finish. The team was waiting for me and I was in a good position to sprint. I had some mechanical problems but it was ok.” Groenewegen said.

“In the final there was some corners but we stayed in a good position and we stayed together really well. I was really good in the sprint, in a good position. I had some problems with my bike after the crash but it was OK. It feels really good.”

Jack Haig (Mitchelton-Scott) climbed to the top of the general classification ahead of Saturday’s queen stage.
