Cummings surges to Basque third stage win


LESAKA, Spain: Britain’s Steve Cummings timed his break for the line perfectly to claim the 193.5km third stage of the Tour of the Basque Country from Vitoria to Lesaka on Wednesday (Thursday in Manila). Cummings surged to the front of the pack a kilometer from the finish and held on to see off Australian Simon Gerrans and Italy’s Fabio Felline in a time of 5hrs 01min 58sec. There was no change in the overall standings as Spaniard Mikel Landa maintained his one second lead over Dutchman Wilco Kelderman with Landa’s Sky teammate Sergio Henao of Colombia a further four seconds back. The six-stage race continues on Thursday with a mountainous 165km ride from Lesaka to Orio.
