Arctic Race of Norway

Stage 3, Målselv, Norway


7 AUGUST 2021

The peloton is strung out as it passes betweeen Finnsnes and Målselv in the very north of Norway during the third stage of this year’s Arctic Race. Arkéa-Samsic can be seen right at the front of the bunch, along with a rider from Intermarch­éWanty- Gobert Matériaux, and one from Uno-X, followed by Burgos- BH. The stage was the most selective of the race, and the teams were attempting to set up their leaders for the final climb, Fjellandsb­y Summit, which was 3.7km at 7.7 per cent. Israel Start- Up Nation would taste victory with Ben Hermans winning on the climb for the second time in his career. Odd Christian Eiking of Intermarch­é would finish second, just failing to get round Hermans in the final 50m, which set the general classifica­tion top two for the remainder of the race.
