Circuit Cycliste Sarthe
Stage 3: Angers - Angers (ITT) - Stage Details

He did it again. Australian Double National Champion Luke Durbridge won the afternoon time trial at Circuit Cycliste Sarthe to move into the race leader’s jersey. The defending champion took the overall victory in France last year after he time trialed into the race lead. Having once again moved into the yellow jersey by virtue of his time trial win, Durbridge is fully confident in ORICA-GreenEDGE’s ability to support a repeat general classification victory.

“The next two road stages are a bit more difficult than the last two stages last year. It’s not ideal, but I think my road condition is better than last year. I’m going in with every intention to defend the jersey until the finish. We have options to play with Cam Meyer down by 1” in third overall, and Svein is only 4” behind.” - Luke Durbridge
