Initially flat course, but in the final the riders will have to face several ups and downs, which is why the finisseurs will be able to try to tire and anticipate Fabio Jacobsen.

Good morning friends of OA Sport and welcome to LIVE LIVE from Paris-Nice! The third segment of the transalpine event is staged today, the Vierzon – Dun-le-Palestel (190.8 km) which could smile again at the fast wheels.

Yesterday Fabio Jakobsen got the better of Wout Van Aert in the sprint, who knows if the Belgian doesn’t want to give him tit for tat. The second part of the stage is characterized by many ups and downs, which is why we must not exclude a finisseur action in the final kilometers or the arrival of a small squad.

In the general classification the Jumbo-Visma wingman Christophe Laporte always commands, while Van Aert (+5 ”) managed to overtake Primoz Roglic (+11”). So far the “Hornets” team has raced great, but certainly the most popular formations will want to stand out in today’s fraction.

Tirreno-Adriatico 2022, Filippo Ganna dominates in Camaiore and wins the time trial in front of Evenepoel!

The stage will begin at 11.25, ending expected at around 16.00. Through the LIVE LIVE curated by OA Sport you can follow the entire stage in real time with detailed minute-by-minute updates. Stay in our company and have fun!
