Phil Bauhaus sprints to Saudi Tour stage 3 win

Phil Bauhaus grabbed the overall lead of the Saudi Tour with victory in a bunch sprint at the end of the third stage in Riyadh.

The 25-year-old was given an excellent lead-out by Bahrain McLaren teammates Heinrich Haussler and Mark Cavendish before pipping Reinardt Janse van Rensburg on the line after the 119km ride from King Saud University.

Bauhaus now leads Rui Costa by three seconds in the overall standings with two stages remaining.

Friday’s fourth stage is a hilly 137km run from Wadi Namar Park back to King Saud University.
