Dylan Groenewegen of LottoNL-Jumbo has won the third stage in the Tour of Norway, beating local hero Edvald Boasson Hagen in the final sprint.

The third of five stages began in Moss and finished in the town of Sarpsborg, south-east of Norway's capital city Oslo. The stage was 175 kilometers long and mostly flat, with the exception of some minor hills.

The breakaway of the day was formed by five riders. Krister Hagen (Team Coop), Lars Saugstad (Uno-X), Torkil Veyhe (Virtu Cycling) and Jeroen Meijers (Roompot-Nederlandse Loterij) of more than four minutes.

At 50 kilometers from the finish, the gap was down to just two minutes but the peloton chose to calmpy control the situation rather than allowing new attacks to be launched before the finale.

In the end, the four leaders were caught at only 600 meters from the finish.

Groenewegen, who had already won the opening stage, was perfectly delivered by his teammates and crossed the line with a considerable gap on his rivals. Edvald Boasson Hagen of Dimension Data took second place behind the Dutchman. Sondre Holst Enger, in the leader's jersey, took third place.

With this result, Groenewegen moves back into first place in the overall standings.
