The stage was characterized by the hilly route with passing 2 climbs at the beginning and at the final part of the stage and with a flat finish at the end.

At the start of the last climb riders of Astana Pro Team set a high pace in the main bunch and managed to split peloton for the several groups, but finally the big group of riders was reformed at the final descent.

The stage was finished with another massive sprint won by race leader Sam Bennett, Kazakhstan champion Alexey Lutsenko was 7th.

- The stage began quite calmly, with the breakaway had formed from the start, and the main bunch rode at an even pace. Before the final climb it was a little bit nervous, several teams began to work. At 1.5 km to the top, Diego Ulissi attacked, followed by Nicholas Roche, I also responded to this attack and at the very top we formed a small breakaway of three riders. There was still 10 km to the finish ahead, and it was difficult to reach the final with this small group, as the descent was quite technical, with a slippery road and I decided not to risk too much. At the descent large group was reformed and we came to the finish with the group of about 50 riders and played a group sprint, where I finished 7th. Looking forward to tomorrow's stage, - commented Alexey Lutsenko.

After 3rd stage also Alexey Lutsenko moves to Top10 of the general classification of the race before the decisive mountain stage tomorrow.
