Dylan Groenewegen doesn't change his tune: Team LottoNL-Jumbo's sprinter rode Oltre XR4 to win Tour of Norway's stage 3, 175 km from Moss to Sarpsborg (Norway) on Friday, May 18th. The 24-year-old rider from Amsterdam outsprinted the landlords Edvald Boasson Hagen and Sondre Holst Enger. Winner of the opener two day before, Groenewegen came back on GC top in 12:08:25, with a one-second advantage on Edvald Enger and Boasson Hagen themselves.
Groenewegen can't complain at all about his comeback to races with his trusted Oltre XR4: thanks to the victories in Horten and Sarpsborg, the Dutchman increased the number of victories up to seven. In the early season the former National champion had "painted" wonders triumphing in Dubai Tour’s opener, Volta ao Algarve em Bicicleta’s first and fourth stage, Kuurne-Bruxelles-Kuurne and Paris-Nice stage 2.

It was the fourth podium and the 11th Top 10 spot for the Bianchi-equipped Team LottoNL-Jumbo at the 101st Giro d'Italia.
