Vuelta a España
Stage 3: Cádiz - Arcos de la Frontera - Stage Details

Michael Matthews has capped off an inspirational team performance to win stage three of the Vuelta a España and move into the red race leader’s jersey today.

Matthews’ ORICA-GreenEDGE team punished themselves on the front of the peloton for the entire stage to bring back an early breakaway and position the 23-year-old in the punchy, uphill final.

“I’m just so happy that I got to finish off for them,” Matthews said of his teammates.

“It makes the win so much sweeter to be able to win when your whole team has absolutely smashed themselves for you.
