Uno-X rider Søren Wærenskold has won the third stage of the Saudi Tour in a tough uphill sprint, beating yesterday's winner Jonathan Milan (Bahrain Victorious) and Cees Bol (Astana) into second and third respectively.

Despite the punishing finale, the Norwegian rider's team managed to put together an effective lead-out going into the last 500 metres, delivering 22-year-old Wærenskjold to his first ever pro victory, and the team's first win of the 2023 season.
