A huge win for Taco van der Hoorn  

Stage three of the 2021 Giro d’Italia was taken by an unexpected winner, as Taco van der Hoorn from Intermarché-Wanty-Gobert Matériaux took victory from the breakaway. 

Van der Hoorn, the 27-year-old Dutchman from Rotterdam, escaped into the day’s likely-doomed breakaway at the start of the stage, eventually riding clear inside the final 8km to secure by far the biggest win of his career.
