Claeys wins stage 3 at Tour de Wallonie

Dimitri Claeys (Wanty-Groupe Gobert) won the third stage at Tour de Wallonie. The Belgian won the bunch kick to the line ahead of Gianni Meersman (Etixx-QuickStep) and Jonathan Hivert (Fortuneo-Vital Concept).

"I knew I had to wait for the sprint because I quickly realized that it was not possible to attack on the climbs. This victory is very important for our partners," Claeys said.

Meersman takes the leader's yellow jersey off teammate Tom Boonen, tied on time with Claeys, while Viacheslav Kuznetsov (Team Katusha) trails the pair by three seconds. 

"It is often a matter of time bonuses," Claeys said. "There are still two hard stages to go. I will fight for the general classification. I feel good and I have a strong team around me."

Tuesday's fourth stage takes place between Aubel and Herstal (177 km). It is expected to be a difficult stage with eight climbs.
