Tour de France 2013 – Stage 03

STAGE 03 Monday, July 1st Ajaccio > Calvi (146 km)

podium


A great effort from GreenEdge with Simon Clarke in the break all day, not quite picking up the polka dots but coming home with the most combative for the days racing. Then in an amazing finish Daryl Impey leads out Simon Gerrans to take the stage – the first Australian to win a stage of the Tour for an Australian team. (Perhaps the prize money can be used to fix the air conditioning unit damage on the OGE bus?)
