Tour de Romandie Stage 3 LIVE


Stage 3:

1. Luis Leon Sanchez (Rabo)
2. G. Meersman (Lotto)
3. P. Tiralongo (Astana)

1. B. Wiggins (Sky)
2. L.L. Sanchez (Rabo) + "1
3. M. Rogers (Sky) + "7

Sanchez wins a sprint finish by centimetres over Meersman after a hard fought, generally uphill, final 5 kilometres. Sky again tightly controlled the peloton - on a tough, up and down stage - catching a breakaway inside the final 5 kms. Wiggins maintains yellow by a single second after the 10" time bonus for the stage victor.

Tomorrow: bigger mountains; Sunday: an Individual Time Trial. The race for yellow is finely poised.

La Neuveville - Charmey 157.6 km

Light uphill finish today. Time to try and pressure Wiggo.

Podiumcafe cheesy pick: Bauke Mollema
