McNulty 4th on day three in Mallorca
American makes winning break in Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana
Brandon McNulty continued his fine run of form to take 4th place at the Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana (158.9km).
After a first season victory taken in sensational solo fashion through McNulty at the Trofeo Calvia, the 23-year old formed part of a 7-rider group which went clear over the final climb of the Coll Puig Major at -30km from the line.
Belgian Tim Wellens (Lotto-Soudal) was fastest of the group, with McNulty a few bike lengths behind in 4th.
McNulty : “ I had good legs on the last climb and was able to make the front group with the best climbers but in the final I just missed the punch I needed in the sprint. It was a tricky run in to the finish and still early in the year so I can’t complain, the speed will come, but I’m still happy with 4th place today.”
Tomorrow the racing at the Mallorca Challenge continues with the Trofeo Pollença – Port d’ Andratx (170km).
