Race report
James Whelan takes the lead early on. Maximilian Schachmann, Ilnur Zakarin and Rohan Dennis go after his. Dennis overhauls his young compatriot on the Lukmanier Pass, followed by Schachmann. Jonas Vingegaard moves up to third place.

The riders reach the summit in that order. Jai Hindley and Nicolas Roche sit in fourth and fifth.

Vingegaard joins Schachmann momentarily on the plateau at the top of the Lukmanier Pass before he drops back again in the descent. Roche overhauls the young Dane before he also takes back Schachmann.

On the finish climb, Roche comes closing in on Dennis. The winner of stage 3 brings the gap down to less than 100 metres in the last kilometre, but it is too little too late.

After stage 1, the ITT World Champion also wins the final stage of The Digital Swiss 5.
