Dylan Groenewegen has booked his third stage victory in the Tour of Great Britain on Wednesday. The Jumbo-Visma rider was the fastest in the mass sprint. Mathieu van der Poel lost the leader's jersey

The 26-year-old Groenwegen had already won the first and third stage in the race. In the flat stage with start and finish in Birkenhead, he was again allowed to raise his hands.

The former Dutch champion left the British Matthew Walls and the Italian Matteo Trentin behind in the sprint. Thanks to the bonus seconds, Trentin took over the leader's jersey from Van der Poel.

Van der Poel had taken power the day before by convincingly winning the fourth stage. He is still second, three seconds from Trentin. Mike Teunissen is the number five in the ranking, eighteen seconds behind.

The Tour of Great Britain, which is not part of the WorldTour, ends on Saturday with a flat ride to Manchester. Last year the overall victory went to the Frenchman Julian Alaphilippe.
