Tour of Guangxi: Gaviria completes hat-trick

With victory on stage 3 of the Tour of Guangxi, Fernando Gaviria (Quick-Step Floors) has won every stage so far, and has secured at least half of the stage wins on offer at the end of season WorldTour race. The Colombian was again imperious, dispatching Max Walscheid (Sunweb) and Magnus Cort (Orica-Scott) in the long straight sprint for the line.

Gaviria also collected a further ten bonus seconds to increase his grip on the red leader’s jersey, while he also holds the blue points jersey and the white 'best young rider' rider jersey. He will take a 13-second lead into stage four ahead of Silvan Dillier (BMC), with Walscheid third at 18 seconds.

After three straight stages for the fast men, stage four of the Tour of Guangxi is expected to see the punchy climbers take centre stage and the battle for the red jersey intensify. The 151km stage, billed as the queen stage of the race, features a summit finish at Nogla that's expected to significantly shape the overall classification.

Although Gaviria has stamped his authority on the race so far, teammate Julian Alaphilippe is expected to be Quick-Step Floors’ man for the mountain.

How it happened

Stage 3 of the Tour of Guangxi saw the peloton roll out of Nanning for four laps of the local 31.4km circuit. An animated start to the race saw several riders jump off the front of the peloton in attempts to force the breakaway.
