Michael Albasini of HTC-Highroad won the sprint of an eight-man escape group to win the third stage of the Bayern Rundfahrt. The Swiss rider outsprinted Sky's Geraint Thomas and Wesley Sulzberger of FDJ.

The late-forming break group had built up enough of a gap to also take over the lead in GC, Albasini ahead of Thomas and Sulzberger. Saturday's 26 km time trial is expected to decide the final winner.

Team Sky was down to only five riders, but worked hard to keep the field together and the yellow jersey on Edvald Boasson Hagen's shoulders. At last however, Tony Hurel (Europcar) and Pieter Serry (Topsport Vlaanderen) got away. The duo built up a lead of over five minutes on the cool, wet and windy day.

There were two category one ranked climbs on the stage, both won by Serry. After the second one, Hurel fell back and the chasing peloton split.

Serry, too, was caught, and eventually a new group formed of Nicki Sorensen (Saxo Bank), Geraint Thomas (Sky) Adriano Malori (Lampre), Johannes Fröhlinger (Skil-Shimano), Biel Kadri (AG2R), Pieter Serry (Topsport Vlaanderen), Michael Albasini (HTC-Highroad), Wesley Sulzberger (FDJ), Andreas Klier (Garmin-Cervelo), and Dirk Müller (Nutrixxion).

Attacks out of the group dropped two of it members, but their lead was enough to let them go for the win. All eight sprinted for the win, with Albasini having the best legs.
