This Monday, Rein Taaramäe offered Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux a fantastic stage win at the Tour of Spain (2.WT, 14/08-5/09), a fourth victory of the season for the Belgian team. The third stage at the Tour of Italy is still fresh in the mind of numerous cycling fans. Taco van der Hoorn surprised by surviving from a breakaway of eight riders, resisting to the peloton and offering the team a first Grand Tour stage victory in its first Giro. Three months later, history was repeated on the Iberian Peninsula. Rein Taaramäe chose to join an early breakaway of eight riders after the start of the third stage in Santo Domingo de Silos. In the 202 kilometer stage, the peloton followed only 9 minutes later on the roads which bring the Estonian rider special memories since his victory at the Tour of Burgos in 2015. The final of the stage was very exciting with the gap between the leaders and the peloton melting away like snow under the sun during the 30 last kilometers. But Taaramäe stayed cool under the circumstances, didn’t react to attacks and waited for the final climb. The top of the Picon Blanco was waiting in the fog after a climb of 7.6 kilometer with an average gradient of 9.1 per cent. The Estonian rider accelerated progressively until he dropped his last companions Kenny Elissonde and Joe Dombrowski on the steep slopes and remained the only leader in the race. The 34 year old former Giro and Vuelta stage winner fought for each second and triumphed on the top. It was a triple succes for Taaramäe as he not only took the stage win but also acquired the lead in the general classification and the QOM classification. This Tuesday, Taaramäe will show his new red kit for 163.9 kilometer on the roads between El Burgo de Osma and Molina de Aragon.
