Alena Amialiusik from CANYON//SRAM Racing has finished fourth today in the third stage of Boels Ladies Tour in Sittard-Geleen. The stage was won by Kasia Niewiadoma (RLT) from Amy Pieters (WHT) with Chantal Blaak (DLT) in third and taking over the leader's jersey.
Early breakaways and a tough course in the final kilometres created several splits in the peloton. CANYON//SRAM Racing had Amialiusik and last year's tour winner Lisa Brennauer in the front group.
"Lisa and I were both sharing the work in the front group. There were some attacks from our group but we were present in every move and we worked well together."
"In the last 5km Ronny (Lauke) told me to do the work for Lisa and we would try for her in the final. It wasn't really a finish for me because after the final small climb there was a false flat for about 300m. But in the end I was in a better position than Lisa. I tried to sprint but they passed me on the flat section."
Amialiusik is positive for the remaining three stages of the tour. "In general I feel good. In the stage today we raced well together and we're looking forward to another chance tomorrow."
Stage four tomorrow is a 115km stage around the city of Tiel. Racing starts at 13:00 (CEST) and can be followed on the team's Twitter @WMNcycling and using #BRLT16.

Earlier this week l’Equipe reported that last year’s Tour runner-up Primož Roglič would have a two month break from racing prior to the French event. That approach goes against the trend of all recent Tour winners, yet Jumbo-Visma believes that this route is the best one to take. Is the team right?
