This was stage 3

Rigoberto Urán and Egan Bernal were the talk of the town during the third stage of the Tour Colombia 2.1, proving their dominance and skill in the race. After two days of low profile, the national cycling leaders came forward and neutralized a leak that fell short, as in previous days. With 22 kilometers to go, the fugitives were controlled, leading to a power struggle that threw the peloton out of rhythm. This prompted Urán and Bernal to surge forward in search of the stage victory and to climb positions in the general classification. Despite their efforts, they were unable to secure the win, but they will have the opportunity to try again in the upcoming queen stage on Saturday.

Pony Osorio emerged as the winner of the third fraction, replacing Harold Tejada with the yellow jersey in the general classification standings. The race promises to deliver further excitement as it approaches the conclusion in Bogotá on Sunday.

Looking ahead to the next stage, Egan Bernal expressed his determination to maintain good physical condition, stating, “In Wine the differences will not be of seconds, but of minutes. You have to recover, rest and first of all think about tomorrow’s arrival.”

Meanwhile, the race will feature the sprinters once again on Friday, including Fernando Gaviria and Mark Cavendish, offering fans another thrilling spectacle. This segment will consist of 181 kilometers with two mountain passes between Paipa and Zipaquirá. Egan Bernal noted, “Today was that stage in which he was not going to win the race, but he could lose it. The fact of getting ahead gives more confidence.”

With the competition heating up, the Tour Colombia 2.1 promises to deliver intense action as it continues through the weekend.
