Australia’s Mark Renshaw and Steele von Hoff took second and third, while Poland’s Rafal Majka of Saxo-Tinkoff retained the leader’s yellow jersey and carried a four second lead into yesterday’s 231.5km ride from Tarnow to Katowice.

British rider and last year’s Tour de France winner Bradley Wiggins continues to struggle this season and finished 49th overall, already 23 minutes, 43 seconds adrift of Majka.
