Marc Soler (Movistar) won stage 3 of the Tour de Romandie today, attacking along the day’s final climb to claim a solo victory in Estavayer while also gaining enough time to become the new overall race leader.

Magnus Cort (EF Education-Nippo) won the sprint for second place, while Peter Sagan (Bora-Hansgrohe) took third.

Meanwhile, previous leader Rohan Dennis (Ineos Grenadiers) suffered a crash somewhere near the finish, conceding the yellow jersey to Soler.

Race Highlights

A flurry of attacks came from the GC contenders, most notably from Michaele Woods (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Sepp Kuss (Jumbo-Visma), along the last of the day’s seven climbs.

Soler launched his winning move towards the top of the final climb with just under 10 kilometers to go, while Ion Izagirre (Astana-Premier Tech) set off in pursuit, but to no avail. 

In the meantime, Bora-Hansgrohe and Bahrain-Victorious tried in earnest to bring back Soler, but the Spanish rider was unreachable at that point.
