Litscher continues winning streak with time trial victory

Bigham wins her first stage in women's category

Thomas Litscher and Sally Bigham won the stage 3 time trial on Lanzarote on Monday.

It was Litscher's third stage win in this year's race. As the race leader, he started last, but was soon climbing the hill with his caught teammate Karl Markt after both overtook Ismael Ventura. Litscher clocked the fastest time, with Markt in second. Benjamin Justesen was third and Luis Leao Pinto took fourth on the stage ahead of Christian Schneidawind in fifth.

It was Bigham's first stage win of the race. She defeated fellow top female racers Adelheid Morath by 1:34 and Annika Langvad in third. Langvad's ride was still good enough for her to keep her overall lead.

Emil Oliver Giraldi and Malene Degn won the cadet men's and women's races, respectively.

All racers battled a tough wind on a beautiful course.

The final stage happens on Tuesday over 80km on what will be the toughest and longest of the four courses.
