HORSENS, Denmark (Reuters) - Australian Matt Goss won the third stage of the Giro d‘Italia on Monday after a bunch sprint.
Argentina’s Juan Jose Haedo was second with American Tyler Farrar third.
Race leader Taylor Phinney of the United States was involved in a crash along with Britan’s world champion Mark Cavendish in the final kilometer.
The stage began with a memorial ceremony for Belgian rider Wouter Weylandt, who died in an accident on stage three of the Giro last year, and for Horsens mayor Jan Trojberg, who died suddenly on Sunday.
Tuesday is the race’s first rest day as the Giro d‘Italia moves to Italy. Racing resumes with a team time trial on Wednesday in Verona.
