Hat-trick for Dainese
Today’s stage at the Tour de Bretagne featured a 171 km long parcour between Le Ferre and Plurien, including four categorized clibms spaced by just 28 km. As per usual the race was off to a fast start with several attempts to for the breakaway of the day, but the peloton was not having it and one way or the other all the attacks were shut down until 4 riders got a gap with 100 km to go. 

They were brought back with more than 30 km left of racing action, and shortly after we could see a 9-man group going up the road. The last man of that move returned to the bunch with 10 km to go. Coming into the final our riders moved to the front of the peloton, bringing Alberto Dainese to the wheel. Once again the teamwork was on point and our youngsters could deliver our talented Italian sprinter to top position ahead of the sprint, and he did not disappoint and took home his third win of the stage, and his fourth of the victory. 

Tomorrow we will head into the final day of the race, in which a big showdown is expected in order to define the final GC after a tough week of racing. With three stage wins here in Bretagne, and a total of 9 UCI wins this season, we will be there fighting for another one.
