Higuita takes GC lead with stage 3 win at Tour de Pologne

Sergio Higuita took the race lead at Tour de Pologne after winning stage 3 on a steep final in Przemyśl.

The Colombian champion sprinted strong on the gradients that reached 15% and held off a late surge from Pello Bilbao (Bahrain Victorious) and Quinten Hermans (Intermarche-Wanty-Gobert).

“This is a very beautiful win for me. It’s a great birthday present for me,” Higuita said.

“The last climb was super hard and super steep. I train on climbs like this in Colombia, going full gas; so when I started the climb, I left a little power for the final 200 metres so that I could keep going. I waited and waited and then sprinted to the line. After the line I was completely empty.”
