Max Walscheid tour de yorkshire 2018

Max Walscheid (Team Sunweb) won stage 3 of the Tour de Yorkshire in an exciting sprint finish in Scarborough. Overall leader, Magnus Cort (Astana) followed his stage win yesterday with second place today.

Jon Aberasturi (Euskadi-Murias) crossed the line third as Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) did not contest the sprint having been left in a group distanced late in the 181km stage from Richmond.

Bryan Coquard (Vital Concept) was the first to launch after being dropped off by his lead out, but he couldn’t stop Cort Nielsen and Walscheid battling right up to the line.

Cort second place means the Dane leads the general classification by 10 seconds from Olympic champion Greg van Avermaet (BMC) going into Sunday’s final stage.
