LottoNL-Jumbo have won three stages of three at the Ster ZLM Toer. The Dutch team has also managed to keep the leader's jersey for the third day in a row.

After Primoz Roglic won the first stage of the Dutch race, Dylan Groenewegen was the strongest in the bunch sprints of the last two days. "Unbelievable. I have never experienced this before, winning the first three stages of a race," said Sports Director Merijn Zeeman.

"It was a hell of a job to let the right breakaway go. From that point on, we controlled the race. Gijs Van Hoecke did a superb job. The rest of the guys were focused on the sprint and they did really well. A huge compliment for the guys," he added.

Groenewegen got the 16th victory for the Dutch team this season by beating Andre Greipel and Moreno Hoffman. "It was a nice win," commented the rider.

"It was a quite hectic final. Everything went well and 175 metres before the finish line, they put me in great position. For the second day in a row, the sprint train worked really well. Robert Wagner did a very fast lead-out, I only had to continue with that speed and no one was able to come over me. Most of these guys here have a chance to be in the Tour de France and I wanted to be in top form to test myself before heading there in July," he affirmed.
