James Piccoli (Israel Start-Up Nation) won race three of the Tour for All virtual race on the Zwift platform, using a late power-up to surge away and win alone on the Watopia circuit climb.

The Canadian stayed in the peloton during the early racing as NTT Pro Cycling tried to dominate the racing. When Pello Bilbao (Bahrain McLaren) was caught, Piccoli marked Domenico Pozzovivo (NTT Pro Cycling) and then surged away, producing 9.5 watts per kilometre for the final 500m of the 72.9km race.
