The Bora shines and Buitrago and Sosa lose time in Los Alpes

Great day for Bora Hansgrohe in the Tour of the Alps. The third stage, of 162.5 kilometers with a finish in a first-class mountain pass, ended with victory for Lennard Kamna and second place for Alexander Vlasov, while the Colombians did not have a good time and lost time.

The demand of the mountain diluted the aspirations of the massive escape, which was reduced with the passing of the kilometers, to the point that he was left alone at the head of the race Joe Dombrowski, who held out until the last top flight promotion.

As the American from Astana held on up front, Kamna’s attack came in the group of favourites. The German opened a gap and then it was the turn of Alexander Cepeda, who caught up with him and subsequently overtook Dombrowski.

Buitrago and Sosa get off the hook and waste time

Ineos Grenadiers kept their cool, while Santiago Buitrago jumped to join the leading couple, but they didn’t give him his legs, the main group neutralized him and then he dropped. By then, Iván Ramiro Sosa was no longer part of that batch of favorites.

Definition between Kamna and Cepeda, but the Ecuadorian wore out on the climb was greater, something that the German took advantage of for the final attack and raised his arms in Brentonico San Valentino. The EF Education EasyPost cyclist finished third, as in the final meters he was overtaken by the pursuers and overtaken by Aleksandr Vlasov. One-Two for the Bora Hansgrohe.

The best of ours was Buitrago, crossing the finish line in 11th place, 32 seconds behind the German, but remains in the top 10 overall. The loss was more significant for Sosa, who reached more than 3 and a half minutes and fell to square 17 of the classification that continues to be commanded by Tao Geoghegan Hart.
