Belgium's Tim Wellens was victorious for the second consecutive day as Lotto-Soudal continued their clean sweep of trophies over the first three days of the Mallorca Challenge on Saturday.

Wellens beat out 2009 Vuelta a Espana champion Alejandro Valverde and compatriot Tiesj Benoot to win the 158.7km Andratx-Mirador des Colomer trophy to go with the Serra de Tramuntana he claimed on Friday.

German sprinter Andre Greipel also won the Porreres-Felanitx-Ses Salines-Campos trophy for Lotto-Soudal on Thursday.

The fourth and final day of the tour -- made up of four individual races -- sees the riders fight for the Playa de Palma-Palma trophy on Sunday.
