After a 165km rolling run on Friday over six small hills, Bevin won the bunch sprint ahead of Ethan Hayter while Rohan Dennis took four bonus seconds by coming third.
This was the first WorldTour win for the Israel-Premier Tech in the 2022 season.
“I knew this was a stage where I could be there at the finish and I really wanted to win this sprint. What a day”, Bevin said.
”All day long I was thinking about that last corner. It was all about that last corner. I cued up on the wheel of Ethan Hayter and it worked out perfectly. It simply couldn’t have gone any better. It’s not often that you have a plan in your head and you get to execute it like that. Today, it really worked out perfectly. It’s amazing.”
Rohan Dennis now leads Bevin in the overall by 14seconds.
Six massive mountains stand in the way of Saturday’s winner on what should be the decisive stage, although Sunday’s uphill time-trial will also carry some edge.
