Junior Tour of Portugal – Stage 3

30 July 2015: Last stage of Volta a Portugal, Boticas to Macedo de Cavaleiros, 110,3 km. Woke up and for the first time in a week my legs felt good. Started the stage with a 3 km climb to get the legs warmed up. At 21 km we started with our first big climb of the day a 2nd category climb 10 km long. Legs felt good and went over in the top 20 after that there were only about 50 guys left in the bunch . Things were more calm and we kept a steady pace. Second climb started at 85 km and was 12 km long. At 3 km to the top my legs didn’t feel so good anymore . From there on it was downhill to the finish. I caught the front group and stayed with them ,sprinted for the line on an uphill finish and ended up with 12th place for the day. Goal for the day was top 10 and I gave it my all but it wasn’t meant to be. Ended 31st on GC. On to the next one ! ‪#‎bridgethatgap‬
