Vuelta 2022 Favourites stage 3: For fast men #2

Tim Merlier - Vuelta 2022 Favourites stage 3: For fast men #2foto: Cor VosThe Gran Salida in the Netherlands is good news for the fast finishers. The 3rd stage of the Vuelta is even flatter than stage 2.

The vertical gain is just 253 metres, while the only climb of the day is not really a climb at all: 400 metres at 3.7%. The ensuing 60 kilometres are as flat as a curling rink.

The last 800 metres are flat, wide and straight before a next to certain bunch sprint in front of the Chassé Theater in Breda.

Bennett won the first sprint stage ahead of Mads pedersen and Tim Merlier.
