Cycling: Tim Merlier wins the 3rd stage of the Al-Ula Tour

Belgian Tim Merlier won the third stage of the Al-Ula Tour in northwest Saudi Arabia on Thursday, “motivated” by the idea of ​​giving a birthday present to his young son.

“I was very motivated today to give him victory for his first birthday,” commented the Soudal-Quick Step sprinter who left no chance to the other “big thighs” on a circuit dedicated to camel races. . At the end of a cold and windy day, marked by several borders, the 31-year-old Belgian beat the Dutchmen Arvid De Kleijn (Tudor) and Casper van Uden (DSM-Firmenich) to pocket his 35th professional victory.

Casper van Uden, who won the first stage, regained the leader's jersey two seconds ahead of Merlier, before the last two stages. The fourth edition of the Al-Ula Tour, formerly the Saudi Tour, takes place until Saturday in this region as large as Belgium which hosts archaeological sites classified as UNESCO world heritage sites, such as Hegra, the “Saudi Petra”. .
