The 22-year-old Jakobsen – last week winner of the Scheldeprijs – showed himself to be the best after a leg over 122,6 km from Canakkale to Edremit. He vloerde in a sprint the Irishman Sam Bennett (Bora-hansgrohe), winner of the first two stages. That continues to be a leader.
The Briton Mark Cavendish (Dimension Data) came in third over the finish line, for the Australian Caleb Ewan (Lotto Soudal). Christophe Noppe (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise) made the top five vol.
Just as during the opening stage made Lindsay De Vylder (Sport Vlaanderen-Baloise) was part of the breakaway of the day. Six riders jumped shortly after the start road. Their maximum lead was 3:15. On good 10 km of the line were The Vylder and three companions as the last survivors caught by the peloton.
Friday is there might be a chance for Remco Evenepoel (Deceuninck-Quick.Step). After 194,3 km between Balikesir and Bursa must be in the final than a solid kuitenbijter (2.7 km to 4,25 percent) would be conquered. The last hundred metres are flat.
