    Søren Kragh Andersen with a maximum force at the 3rd stage of Paris-Nice 2022A breakaway of three riders created the main interest for the stage of the day in Paris-Nice 2022, but in the final circuit final, while there was still around 25 kilometers to go, their adventure came to an end.

    Since the sprinters teams had been working for a big part of the day to come back on the leading trio, a sprint became unevitable and in the long straight line, slightly uphill, towards the finish line, Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) managed to make the difference and win this stage.

    The summary of the third stage of Paris-Nice 2022: Vierzon > Dun-le-Palestel

    At the end of the morning today the third stage of Paris-Nice 2022 started in Vierzon, for a stage without any real difficulties, of 191 kilometers towards Dun-le-Palestel.

At kilometer 3.5 a trio made up by Thomas de Gendt (Lotto Soudal), Alexis Gougeard (B&B Hotels-KTM) and Owain Doull (EF Education-Easypost) was the right one for the day's breakaway. Their gap went up to 5 minutes at kilometer 24, and stayed stable for quite some time from there.

    We indeed had to wait until kilometer 90 before the gap started to reduce, due to the efforts made by the Trek-Segafredo and Alpecin-Fenix teams which started riding in front of the peloton for quite some time already. On the top of the Côte d'Eguzon at 70 kilometers from the finish, De Gendt was first on top, while the gap of the leading trio was still 3'15".

    Seeing the finish line getting closer, other teams joined the teams ahead of the peloton in order to try to reduce the gap and while De Gendt again takes the points on the Côte de Crozant at 66 kilometers from the finish Søren Kragh Andersen gives it a try - © A.S.O./Alex Broadwayand the breakaway's gap is down to 2'15" at that time. For the first crossing of the finish line, at 44 kilometers from the end goal, it's down again, to 1'45" and it continues to go down, reaching one minute at 30 kilometers from the finish.

    Søren Kragh Andersen (Team DSM) breaks away from the peloton in order to chase behind the trio but the Cofidis team, working for Bryan Coquard, didn't count its efforts and the adventure of the Danish rider thus rapidly came to an end.

    In the climb of the Côte de Le Peyroux the breakaway with the three men is finally over, knowing that there's still around 25 kilometers to go at that point. Several riders try one by one to get away, including again Søren Kragh Andersen, but at 5 kilometers from the finish, the peloton (reduced in the final climb) is again back together. In the sprint, Mads Pedersen (Trek-Segafredo) wins the stage. Despite a crash in the last 300 meters, Christophe Laporte (Jumbo-Visma) keeps the lead in the general classification.
