Gianni Moscon (Ineos Grenadiers) has taken his second victory in the 2021 Tour of the Alps while Simon Yates retained the lead of the General Classification.

The third stage of the Euroregional race was 162 kilometres long from Imst (Tirol) to Naturns/Naturno (Südtirol). During the penultimate ascent of the day, a pace set by teams like BikeExchange managed to catch the remaining escapees from a group that was already shattered due to the toughness of the climb.

During the last climb, Moscon and Felix Grossschartner managed to break free while behind Pello Bilbao was trying to contact them. The stage came down to a final sprint between the Italian of Ineos and the Austrian of Bora-hansgrohe and the first was the best on the last metres.

"On Monday I broke the ice in Innsbruck, now I have regained my confidence and feeling with victory," said Moscon. "The stage was clearly suited for long-run breakaways, with its challenging profile. In the final kilometres we were down to four and insisted in our action until the finish: it worked out well.

"Dreaming of a hat-trick in my Trentino might seem too much right now: tomorrow we are expected by a hard and important stage, and we are ready to stand by Pavel Sivakov, hoping that his fall will leave no significant aftermath."
