PREVIEW | Saudi Tour 2023 stage 3 - Hilly finish will see puncheurs and GC riders battle against sprinters

Throughout five days the peloton will race in Saudi Arabia, for the Saudi Tour. After two days for the sprinters where Dylan Groenewegen and Jonathan Milan took the wins, the third day of racing will offer up something for the lighter riders.

Stage three has a open finale, but most of the day is flat. Even though the profile hints at a lot of climbing, no tough gradients will be found at any time, and it's at the finish where the hurt may be put to the sprinters. A sprint is expected, however a 700 meter ramp at 7% ends already inside the final kilometer, the puncheurs and GC riders will have an opportunity to take time on the competition.

Stage 3: Al Manshiyah Train Station - Abu Rakah, 159.2 kilometers
