Stage 3 of the Giro del Trentino would prove to be an exciting affair with Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung at the thick of the action. Cadel Evans (BMC) would take out the stage win ahead of Domenico Pozzovivo (AG2R La Mondiale) and Mikel Landa (Astana) but it was Louis Meintjes and Sergio Pardilla who would impress from Team MTN-Qhubeka p/b Samsung. Pardilla was very attentive right from kilometer zero as he tried to get into the breakaway. Being sure to follow and counter all moves in the opening kilometers Pardilla managed to eventually go clear with 11 other riders after 35km. Pardilla would prove to be.
