Dylan Groenewegen wins stage 3 with Wout van Aert extending his overall lead at Tour de France 2022 - Results

Find out what happened in the 182km-stage from Vejle to Sonderborg in Denmark on the third day of racing at Le Tour.

Dutch rider Dylan Groenewegen (BikeExchange-Jayco) won the third stage of road cycling's 2022 Tour de France in a blanket finish on Sunday (3 July).

The 182km trip between Vejle and Sonderborg came to an emphatic finish, with Groenewegen getting his nose in front to claim the fifth Tour de France stage victory of his career. He narrowly beat Belgian riders Wout van Aert and Jasper Philipsen in second and third place. Van Aert consolidated his lead in the general classification with his second-place finish.

A large crash towards the back of the peloton on the cobblestone section just over 10km to the finish, ultimately split the bunch.

Danish rider Magnus Cort (EF Education-EasyPost) launched a one-man breakaway leading from the start, where he remained for 130km.

At one point, Cort opened a gap of more than six minutes on the chasing peloton before they finally caught up with him with 52km to the finish. The 29-year-old Cort retained the polka dot jersey from the day before.

Following the final day of racing in Denmark the riders will take their first rest day of this year’s Le Tour travelling to France for the fourth leg, a 171.5km trip between Dunkirk and Calais on Tuesday.
