The Australian rider Michael Matthews ( Orica-GreenEDGE) won stage three of the 2015 Giro d'Italia, from Rapallo to Sestri Levante (136km), retaining the race leader's Maglia Rosa.

Michael Matthews
"After the Team Time Trial win, today was another big target for us. We reconned the stage last week so we knew what to expect, and we pulled it off. We did very well to get two guys into the breakaway. The stage was quite hard, and I tried to get to the foot of the final climb near the front so that I could drift back to save some energy. Simon Gerrans worked very hard to position me for the sprint. The Giro d'Italia so far is a dream come true for me."
Q: Is it special to win a stage wearing the Maglia Rosa?
"Oh yeah!"
