2020 Tour de France stage 3 highlights – Video

Though a largely uneventful day, stage 3 of the 2020 Tour de France (opens in new tab) did spring into life at the finish as Caleb Ewan (opens in new tab) (Lotto Soudal) added to his 2019 tally of three stage victories with a stunning finish in Sisteron.

The Australian came from a long way back on the finishing straight, weaving through his competition before surging past Sam Bennett (opens in new tab) (Deceuninck-QuickStep) just in time for the line after the Irishman head hit the headwind to early.

"I found my way through the wheels - coming from behind is a bit of a risk - but I found my way along the barrier and I came with a lot of speed and it worked in the end," Ewan said after the finish.

Earlier in the day, there was a battle for the polka dot jersey (opens in new tab) between Anthony Perez (opens in new tab) (Cofidis) and Benoît Cosnefroy (opens in new tab) (AG2R La Mondiale). A puncture and crash with the Cofidis car meant Perez's Tour was over mid-stage, though.

Cosnefroy retained the polka dots despite a late crash, while fellow breakaway rider Jérôme Cousin (opens in new tab) (Total Direct Energie) provided a late highlight after riding on solo for more than 100km after his breakmates had been caught.
