Wind, rain and lots of variety. This was the third stage of the Tour of Ukraine. Normally you would expect the usual game like at almost all 200-kilometer-long, flat stage: a small group will escape relatively early and then the team of the overall leader will control the race until the final.
But not today! Today's race had everything to offer: echelones, many attacks and then, finally, a sprint. So the race in the first 120 kilometers was more like a one-day race than a stage race.
In the final, Tino Thömel was able to show that he is just fast. Perfectly led out by Joschka Beck, Tino beat the Argentinian champion from Italian Pro Team Trevigniani and put him in second place. In third place came the overall leader Vitly Buts from Ukrainian Team Kolss.
