Mauricio Moreira wins 3rd stage of GP Jornal de Notícias

Uruguayan Mauricio Moreira (Efapel) won the 3rd Stage of the Jornal de Notícias GP.
Joaquim Silva (Tavfer-Measindot-Mortágua) reinforced this Thursday his command of the 30th Jornal de Notícias Big Prize, after the counter-report of the third stage.
Mauricio, who had already won the 1,800 meter prologue, completed a 7.4 kilometer climb between Santo Tirso and Nossa Senhora da Assunção in 15.05 minutes, leaving José Neves (W52-FC Porto) two seconds behind and António Carvalho (Efapel ) to nine.
Joaquim Silva started the race with a seven-second lead over second-placed Henrique Casimiro (Kelly-Simoldes-UDO), however, his fifth place, 28 seconds behind the winner, gave him time to beat his closest rivals.
Now, the cyclist leads with more comfortable ​​25 seconds over Alejandro Marque (Hotel Atum General-Tavira-Maria Nova).
Today, Friday, the cyclists will perform the fourth of the six stages, with 149.5 kilometers starting and ending in Vila Real.
