Eddie Dunbar wins Tour de Hongrie

Eddie Dunbar (Ineos Grenadiers) claimed the overall victory in the Tour de Hongrie, escaping along with Antonio Tiberi (Trek-Segafredo), who edged out the Irishman for the stage win.

Overnight leader Fabio Jakobsen (Quickstep-AlphaVinyl), as expected, gave up the jersey on the 12-kilometre final climb to the Kekestetö lookout on the highest mountain in Hungary.

Stage 2 leader Jens Reynders (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise) made it into the day's breakaway along with Nicolas Dalla Valle (Giotti Victoria-Savini Due), Tilen Finkšt (Adria Mobil), Ádám Kristóf Karl (Hungary), Umberto Marengo (Drone Hopper-Androni Giocattoli) and Sergio Roman Martín (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA).

Reynders, third overnight 12 seconds behind Jakobsen, was given a short leash and once the breakaway hit the lower slopes of the final climb, they were caught.

As the final kilometres approached, the big teams came to the fore, with Astana, Bora-Hansgrohe and Ineos ramping up the pace. Ben Turner put in a surge to set up Dunbar for the attack.

Dunbar sprinted away inside two kilometres to climb and was hunted down by Tiberi and Oscar Rodriguez (Movistar). While the Movistar rider never quite made the catch, Tiberi managed to both catch and pass Dunbar in the final metres to take the stage. However, having lost almost 13 minutes on the second stage, he was no threat in the overall standings.
