Trentin top-5 in Luxembourg

Italian sits 3rd overall, Hirschi top-10 in Coppa Sabatini

After yesterday’s impressive victory, Matteo Trentin finished at the head of the peloton again to finish 4th at the Tour of Luxembourg on the third stage, from Rosport to Diekirch (188.4km).



Aaron Gate (Black Spoke) surprised the peloton to jump away in the final kilometre to steal victory from the sprinters behind in what was a technical finish.



Tomorrow will see a decisive stage for the General Classification with an individual time trial at Remich (26km).



Meanwhile at the Coppa Sabatini, Marc Hirschi underlined his good form after yesterday’s victory with a 9th place in Italy.



The Swiss talent formed part of the elite 12-man group on the hilly course which would then split-up in the final 15km, with Hirschi in the second part as Dani Martinez (Ineos-Grenadiers) took the win.



The action in Italy will continue on Saturday for the Memorial Marco Pantani.
