PeloPics: A spectacular stage 3 under the Yorkshire sun and in front of impressive crowds saw Maximilian Walscheid (Sunweb) sprint to victory by the sea in Scarborough. The German made the best of the hard work of his Sunweb team who chased all breakaway attempts and perfectly launched their sprinter on the final straight. Walscheid eventually beat Magnus Cort Nielsen (Astana) and Jon Aberasturi (Euskadi Basque Country-Murias) to the line to claim his first success this season. The overall leader’s blue jersey remains on the shoulders of Magnus Cort Nielsen with one day to go on the Tour de Yorkshire.
