Kittel wins Ster ZLM Toer GP stage 3

Argos-Shimano rider takes over general classification lead

Marcel Kittel (Argos-Shimano) showed he is ready for the sprint showdowns at the Tour de France by beating Andre Greipel (Lotto Belisol) and Mark Cavendish (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) at the end of stage three of the Ster ZLM Toer to Buchten in the south of the Netherlands.

Theo Bos (Blanco) won stage two but the former Dutch track sprinter had to settle fourth place this time as Kittel also took the race leader's yellow jersey from his teammate and stage one winner Robert Wagner thanks to the time bonuses. Wagner is six seconds down, with Lars Boom (Blanco) third at seven seconds.

Kittel also took the lead in the points jersey, completing a great day for the German sprinter. It was his second win in six days after also taking the Garmin Pro Race in Berlin on Sunday.

“It was a controlled race today as we had one of our engines on the front with Albert Timmer,” Kittel said on the team's website after the race.

“It was a quite difficult last lap after bringing the break back, being really technical, so we had to take care to stay in the right position, but it was not easy. We stayed calm with a good plan and came to the front at just the right time, just avoiding a crash in the bunch. We only lost Luka Mezgec by a crash but he is ok. It was up to Ramon Sinkeldam and Tom Veelers in the finale and they did a great lead out. I knew Greipel was on my wheel but he wasn’t able to get past me. It’s nice to know that my sprint is where it should be at the right moment.”

The 188km stage included several climbs in the Southern Limberg hills including the Cauberg and the Eyserbosweg that are better known as key moments in the Amstel Gold Race. Eight riders went on the attack to form the break of the day with Martijn Keizer (Vacansoleil-DCM) eventually go solo to secure the lead in the climber's competition. However the sprinters' teams were determined to bring the race back together and set up their leaders and the break was 10km from the finish.

Lotto-Belisol, Omega Pharma-Quick Step, Argos-Shimano and Blanco all shared the work of chasing down the break. A high-speed crash dumped several riders from both from Argos-Shimano and Lotto-Belisol on the ground but none of the big-name sprinters were involved.

Kittel was protected by his teammates and hit the front early after a slight rise in the road inside the final kilometre. Greipel and Cavendish matched the German's speed but could not get passed him as Kittel celebrated Argos-Shimano's 13th win of the 2013 season.

Saturday sees another tough ay in the saddle, with the race heading into the Ardennes for the 186km stage from Verviers to La Gileppe.
