Tour of Guangxi – Stage three: Nanning – Nanning, 143km

Jhonatan Narvaez suffered an unfortunate crash after riding into a strong position in the final kilometres of stage three at the Tour of Guangxi.
The Ecuadorian rode impressively on the final climb of the day in Nanning, forcing his way into a reduced group heading into the final kilometre. Arriving fourth wheel into a tightening left-hand corner, Narvaez's front wheel slipped out, losing a promising position on the run-in.
The stage ended in a reduced bunch sprint, with Pascal Ackermann (Bora-Hangrohe) extending his race lead with victory.

Both Diego Rosa and David de la Cruz were present in the first group on the road, finishing on the same time as Ackermann. The pair sit 22 seconds back ahead of stage four, which culminates in a summit finish in the Nongla Scenic Area.
