Chloe Hosking (Trek-Segafredo) won stage 3 at the Tour de l'Ardeche. The Australian sprinted to the win ahead of runner-up Barbara Guarischi (Movistar) and Charlotte Kool (NXTG Racing) in Avignon.

"I am super stoked to get another win for the season," said Hosking. "We went into the race with a pretty clear plan: we really wanted to try and nail our lead-out. So we did a lot of looking on Google earth, and Ina [Teutenberg] mapped it out and gave everyone a very specific role, and I feel like we executed that perfectly."

Leah Thomas (Movistar) finished safely in the main field and maintained her lead in the overall classification by nine seconds ahead of both Lizzie Deignan (Trek-Segafredo) and Jeanne Korevaar (Liv Racing).

Stage 3 was a 133km in Avignon that included three categorised climbs mid-race followed by a flat 80km to the finish.

Sabrina Stultiens (Liv Racing) went on a solo move and gained four and half minutes on the main field but her efforts came to an end in the final with the field back together inside the last 10km. In the anticipated bunch sprint, Hosking proved fastest beating Guarischi and Kool at the line.
