Juan Sebastian Molano (UAE Team Emirates) has taken his second victory in a row at the Tour Colombia.

The third stage of the South American competition was 177.7 kilometres long between Paipa and Sogamoso over a rolling course. The teams with sprinters tried their best once again to force a fast finale and despite the altitude change and the climbs, they managed to reach their objective.

The Colombian rider of UAE Team Emirates was once more the fastest man at the bunch sprint, beating like this his fellow countrymen Edwin Ávila (Israel Start-Up Nation) and Alvaro Hodeg (Deceuninck-Quick-Step).

"Today's stage was different from yesterday's, since the altitude difference of the route was heavy and in the end it was felt in the legs of all the riders," said Molano at the end of the stage.

"I also felt sensations of fatigue, but I knew it was normal on a day of this type and I held on, and then made a good sprint. Tomorrow's day will also be demanding but also stimulating, I like the stage very much."

The fourth stage of the Colombian race will take the peloton between Paipa and Santa Rosa de Viterbo over a 168.6-kilometre route that features a climbing finish on a third category ascent.
