But after the first intermediate sprint, some riders including Matteo Trentin, Jorge Arcas, Ben Healy, Casper Pedersen, Jake Stewart, Ivo Oliveira, and Stan Van Tricht, managed to distance themselves from the peloton.

They enjoyed the lead of three minutes for some time, but the peloton was catching up. Lead decreased to 1 minute 60 kilometers before the finish line. In the final kilometers, the peloton caught them, and it was sprint time. Kévin Vauquelin launched an early attack but couldn’t hold the lead for a long time. De Lie won the sprint and secured the victory. Girmay tried to counter De Lie but failed and secured silver. Axel Laurance finished third. Robert Stannard is the overall leader in the GC.

Tour de Wallonie: Arnaud De Lie ahead of Biniam Girmay and Axel Laurance on the 3rd stage

July 25, 2022

It was the young Arnaud De Lie (Lotto Soudal), 20, who won the 3rd stage of the Tour de Wallonie in Rochefort. At the end of the 194.3 kilometer, on a false flat finish, he sprinted ahead, and a good length, Biniam Girmay (Intermarché Wanty Gobert), 22 years old and Axel Laurance (B&B Hotels / KTM), 21 years old. A podium made up of young runners! 

In the last kilometers, the Frenchman Kevin   Vauquelin (Arkea Samsic), who started alone 5 kilometers from the finish, resisted the return of the sprinters until the last kilometer. 

The young Belgian pocketed his 7th victory of the season, for his first year with the pros. A victory celebrated by imitating the horns of the bull, the "Bull" nickname of the Belgian phenomenon. 

The general remains on the shoulders of Robert Stannard (Alpecin Deceuninck).
