After winning the first and second stage, Marc Sarreau also was the strongest in stage 3 of the Tour Poitou-Charentes. The morning stage of 90 kms ended in a bunch sprint, where Sarreau displayed his power once more.
"This is the first time in my professional career that I have won three races in a row. It is a huge satisfaction, especially since it was not clear this would be possible at the beginning of the race. I am surrounded by a great team on courses that suit me. Adding victories to my palmares like this has been a total confidence builder. For instance, I’m not sure I would have taken the same initiatives yesterday if I hadn’t won the first day. It all comes together and it’s amazing."
