Team BikeExchange-Jayco’s Dutch cyclist Dylan Groenewegen on Sunday won the third stage of the 2022 Tour de France held in Denmark.

Groenewegen, 29, finished the 182-kilometer (113-mile) stage between the Danish cities of Vejle and Sonderborg in 4 hours, 11 minutes and 33 seconds.

Team Jumbo-Visma's Belgian athlete Wout Van Aert came in second, and his compatriot at Team Alpecin-Deceuninck, Jasper Philipsen, was third.

Van Aert kept his yellow jersey as he is leading the general ranking.

On Monday, the teams will travel to France to carry on the tour, so there will be no contest.

The next stage, which will be the fourth one, will start in the French city of Dunkirk near the Belgian border on Tuesday.

The cyclists will pedal between Dunkirk and Calais and the hilly stage's length will be 171.5 kilometers (106.5 miles).

This year's tour includes 21 stages, and the major cycling contest will end on the Avenue des Champs-Elysées in Paris on July 24.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
