TROPICAL AMISSA BONGO - In the aftermath of the victory of Eritrean Natnael Tesfatsion, the general's leader, his compatriot Biniam Girmay won this Wednesday the third stage of the Tropical Amissa Bongo, at the end of the 186 kilometers connecting Mitzic, in the north of Gabon, in Ndjolé, in the west.

And two for Eritrea! This Wednesday, the rider of the Nippo-Delko team beat the Frenchmen Jordan Levasseur and Emmanuel Morin by two and four seconds respectively. Tesfatsion, who won Tuesday in Oyem, retained his leader's jersey in the general classification. The 20-year-old Eritrean, who runs under the national jersey, has respectively 4 and 9 seconds ahead of Levasseur (Natura4ever) and Morin (Cofidis).


The 4th stage, the longest stage (190 km) of the Gabonese event which has seven, will lead the peloton from Lambaréné (west) to Mouila (south) on Thursday, on a course devoid of major difficulties. The successor to the Italian Niccolo Bonifazio, winner of the 2019 edition, will be known on Sunday upon arrival in Libreville.
