For the second stage in a row a crash with 3 km to go disrupted the lead in to the finish, but this time it didn’t impact the sprint finish. Riejanne Markus piloted her Visma-Lease a Bike teammate Marianne Vos through the final kilometre and the GOAT had no competition sprinting to win the stage ahead of Charlotte Kool (DSM Firmenich-PostNL) and Olivia Baril (Movistar).

Race leader Blanka Vas of SD Worx-Protime scored two more bonus seconds on the road and will go into the fourth stage still in red one second ahead of Vos. Elisa Longo Borghini sits third overall a further 10 seconds down.
