UAE Team Emirates blast TTT with victory in Paris-Nice

McNulty moves into lead as Ayuso holds jersey in Tirreno-Adriatico

UAE Team Emirates powered to victory at a rain-hit stage 3 team time trial at Paris Nice in France today. The team put in an excellent ride and also avoided the rain to put Brandon McNulty into the race lead after completing the hilly 26.9km Auxerre course in a time of 31:23.




Finn Fisher-Black was first rider to cross the line with Jay Vine, Joao Almeida and Brandon McNulty in close convoy. McNulty takes yellow while Fisher-Black takes the white jersey as best young rider. The team finished 15” ahead of second place Jayco-AlUla.




McNulty: “We’re super happy we won the stage and then I got the news I’d be in the leaders jersey which was a very nice surprise. It was a really heavy start with hilly roads and then the second half of the course was super fast, some of the speeds were crazy.


I guess we were lucky to get in just before the rain started so that definitely played in our advantage. We have Joao here as our main leader for the week but our team is just really strong in general. I was a bit sick after UAE Tour so I don’t know exactly how I’m going but we’ll see tomorrow on the first mountain test.”




Meanwhile in Italy Juan Ayuso continues to lead Tirreno-Adriatico by 1” over Filippo Ganna (Ineos-Grenadiers) after a sprint stage won by Jasper Philipsen (Alpecin Deceuninck).
