EF Education-EasyPost (France) - Press Release: A powerful team effort put Magnus in the race lead.
Magnus Cort took over the leader’s jersey at Paris-Nice after a superb TTT effort with his teammates on stage three.
We finished just 1.4 seconds short of the stage victory, but a huge turn from Magnus in the final kilometer fired him ahead of his rivals in the race for the yellow jersey. Magnus now leads Paris-Nice by one second going into stage four.
“I am very happy,” Magnus said afterwards. “You know you can’t expect to come in yellow, but we were dreaming big today. We have a really strong team for this team time trial, so it is not completely unexpected.”
