Ivan Sosa won stage 3 of the Tour de la Provence to become the new overall leader of the race, in what was a typically dominant mountain top finish performance from Ineos Grenadiers. 

The 23-year-old Colombian made his race-winning attack 5km from the summit at Chalet Reynard after his young teammate Carlos Rodriguez produced a superb turn at the front of the peloton to whittle the peloton down. 

Behind, their teammate Egan Bernal was best of the rest to finish second, with world champion Julian Alaphilippe in third.

More to come!
