Marc Soler wins Tour de Romandie stage 3, takes GC lead

Catalan from Movistar Team wins in Estavayer after perfectly-timed attack through final Les Granges climb, takes yellow jersey before Queen stage on Saturday + TT showdown on Sunday

The Movistar Team savoured again the joy of success at the UCI WorldTour with the same rider who had conquered, back in 2020 at La Vuelta, the latest victory to date for the Telefónica-backed squad in cycling’s top tier: Marc Soler. The Catalan showed again his quality on day three of the 2021 Tour de Romandie, over a circuit in Estavayer (168km) with two Cat-3 climbs, the last of which witnessed the unstoppable final attack, under pouring rain, from the Vilanova native 10km before the end, which also gave him the yellow jersey as GC leader.
