Between Argentina and Italy, at the start of stage 3, they were separated by 33 seconds and 41 with Chile, which was in third place. The very good work of the entire Argentine national team in this stage, with Maxi Richeze in the final pack, ensured him to stretch this difference at the end of the fourth stage and now with 34:40:41 hours he is the leader by 2:09 minutes difference.
In second place is Italy with 34:42:50, which once again had its best representative in Manlio Moro, finishing the stage 11 seconds behind the winner. Chile had Vicente Rojas finishing 2 seconds behind the winner, and with a very good initial job from Manuel Lira and José Luis Rodríguez who led the only break of the stage in search of bonus goals.
The trans-Andean team accumulates 34:43:10 hours, is 2:29 minutes behind Argentina, and 20 seconds behind Italy, while Uruguay, which today had Juan Luis Coarsi as its best rider, finished 24 seconds behind the leader of the stage. He accumulates 35:19:16 hours, placing himself 38:35 minutes behind the Argentine team.
The third stage that will join the San Juan Villicum Circuit will once again put the teamwork of the national teams at stake in the Vuelta a San Juan.
