Emil Vinjebo sailed close to victory on third stage in Wallonie - caught just before the line

With several breakaways in front throughout the stage, Emil Vinjebo lead the front of the race with 20 km to go, when he attacked from the peloton. Unfortunately, he was caught with 2 km to the line, where Lucas Eriksson finished 17th and held on to his spot in the GC.

“It was another good day today”, says directeur sportif Michael Skelde. “Sadly, Vinjebo didn’t go all the way for a stage victory, but it’s one more day, where we were visible and made an impact to the race.”

When Alexander Kamp crashed after 25 km. With a damaged arm, he was sent away in an ambulance for a check-up.

“We feared that he maybe broke something in his arm, but we just heard about an hour ago, that luckily nothings broken. He got patched up and will probably feel it in the coming days, but it’s good news, that it wasn’t more serious”, ends Michael Skelde.

With two remaining stages of this year’s Tour de Wallonie, Lucas Eriksson is still close in the fight for the overall, while Nicolai Brøchner still sits just a couple of points away from the mountain’s jersey.
