Milan Menten has won the third stage of the CRO Race, taking his first victory as a pro. Menten also took over the leader's jersey of the 6-day stage race.

The 167km stage from Primosten to Makarska saw riders tackle a series of hills late before Menten won a nail-biting sprint finish, ahaed of Mick Van Dijke. Menten now tops the general classification by three seconds ahead of Skaarseth, and six ahead of Van Dijke.

The victory of Menten is well-deserved after he rode a very consistent season. He recorded no less than 14 top-10 places.
