Speaking after the race, Bole said: "The climb was really hard, so we had to work hard and push down to full gas. On the flat and on the downhill I was a little better on the bank so I could have a little more relaxed ride. It was a good race.
"I waited until the finish (to use my second power-up) because I knew this is the most important to keep it until the end."
NTT Pro Cycling won the team classification on the day with 74 points and strengthened their position at the top of the overall points classification. The final stage on Friday is the climb to L'Alpe du Zwift.
Both men's and women's racing will be screened each day between 1400 and 1600 BST with some of the best cycling teams in the world including Mitchelton-Scott, EF-Education, NTT, Alpecin-Fenix, Bahrain-McLaren, Canyon//SRAM Racing, CCC-Liv and Boels Dolmans competing for race honours. Teams and the top 25 riders will gain points across the week alongside a daily individual race winner. There will also be intermediate points on each stage and double points for the Top 10 on the Queen Stage (Stage 5).

An additional $125,000 can be unlocked once 250,000 people complete a stage of the Tour for All. The professional racing series is designed to showcase the mass-participation stages and encourage Zwifters to take part by riding some of the same courses that the pros have raced.
