Stage three was another fun one. A long rolling stage with an interested finish. For a while it looked like the break away might survive for an upset, but that was not to be. With the peloton assuring itself and Sagan showing his class once again, wining the sprint despite losing a foot.

While I appreciate Porte looking for every opportunity available to take back time, I’m worried he will wear himself out if he continues with attacks like this one. Contador made the smarter play, going with the move and then sitting up as soon as it was obvious it wouldn’t survive. I have nothing against attacking riding, but if you are going to burn energy on an attack, you want Sky and Froome to have to burn energy in the chase.
