Peter Schulting (Diftar) claimed a surprise victory on stage 3 of the ZLM Tour after the day’s early break narrowly held off the return of the peloton in a breathless finale in Buchten.

A day after Schulting’s teammate Guillaume Visser was caught in the final kilometre, Schulting made amends for Diftar with a pitch-perfect effort. He opened his sprint from distance to beat breakaway companions Martijn Rasenberg (Parkhotel Valkenburg) and Wessel Mouris (Metec – Solarwatt p/b Mantel), with the peloton falling just short of catching them.
