TOUR OF QINGHAI LAKE: PACIONI IS THE NEW GREEN JERSEY OF THE RACE


Luca Pacioni missed his return to the victory for only few centimetres in Guide, stage 3 of the Tour of Qinghai Lake won by the rumenian Eduard Grosu.

The turning point of the stage was the long 3rd cat. KOM placed at the half of the day where the peloton splitted with many sprinters left behind.

After a long chase, and thanks to the amazing job of the team, Pacioni was able to bridge with 15 kms to go and then to fight for the win at the sprint where only Grosu was able to beat him.

For the romagnolo rider the consolation is the green jersey of the points classification, a jersey that he wore during the 2018 edition before crashing in the 10th stage and losing all his chances for the final win.

Tomorrow the stage will be short, only 100 kms, but with two long and demanding climbs that should give us an idea of the pretenders for the general classification
