Brad Huff (Jelly Belly) won the bunch sprint at the end of stage three of the Tour of Hainan. The American beat Sergey Kudentsov (Polygon Sweet Nice) into second place, while stage 1 winner Yuri Metluschenko (Ukraine) finished third.

The stage was animated by a long, lone break from Iran’s Ghader Mizbani, and he led over the day’s two climbs before the sprinters’ teams brought things back together in the finale.

Valentin Iglinskiy (Astana) maintains his overall lead after finishing in the peloton. The Kazakh continues to lead Taji Nishitani (Asian Racing Team) and Johnnie Walker (Footon-Servetto) by 4 and 6 seconds respectively. Iglinskiy also leads the points classification, while Arkaitz Duran (Footon-Servetto) holds the king of the mountains jersey.
