EF Education First-Drapac's Sacha Modolo has won the third stage of the Vuelta a Andalucia/Ruta del Sol. The rider beat Carlos Barbero and Nelson Soto in a final sprint.

Marco Minnaard (Wanty-Groupe Gobert), Oscar Cabedo (Burgos BH), Alvaro Cuadros (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA) and Hector Saez (Euskadi-Murias) formed the escape of the day on the 165.1-kilometre long stage between Mancha Real and Herrera. The quartet achieved a two-minute gap with the pack, but with 18 kilometres to go Minnaard and Cabedo couldn't keep up with the other two, who at the end were also caught with 10 kilometres to go.

In the bunch sprint, Modolo was the fastest and took the victory after being second on the first stage of the Spanish race. Carlos Barbero (Movistar) and Nelson Soto (Caja Rural-Seguro RGA) completed the top three of the day.

Team Sky's Wout Poels arrived with the peloton and managed to keep the leader's jersey for another day.
