Tour de Luxembourg
Stage 3: Eschweiler (Wiltz) to Differdange - Stage Details

Danish rider Chris Juul-Jensen had a strong finish on today's stage three of theTour de Luxembourg, sprinting to second place after a incredible display of teamwork and impressive ride from 25-year-old Luke Durbridge.

Durbridge animated most of the rainy stage being present in a breakaway of five riders until the final laps when Juul-Jensen bridged across. The ORICA-GreenEDGEduo remained out front with two other riders and in a position to race for the stage victory. 

It was Anthony Turgis (Team Cofidis) who proved the fastest in the end, with Juul-Jensen sprinting to second place and jumping up to fifth place on the general classification with just one stage remaining.

Sport director Matt Wilson was overjoyed with the team performance today having raced tactically well on the tough Queen stage.

"It was an awesome day by the team today, really fantastic," said Wilson. "Durbridge was super aggressive, in fact all the guys were. He eventually got in the break which was the strongest of the tour, he rode well and he played it really cool out there."
