Paris-Nice Stage 3 possible SPOILER!!!! On VS??

Well if you followed the coverage today (or were lucky enought to see it live) that was quite an effort. Won't say who won but even in print it was pretty exciting. I see VS has coverage listed for today. Wonder if it will be a repeat of the Sunday prologue or a recap of the first three stages.

Very impressive indeed. 213k off the front and a heckuva an effort to get the win.

Kudos to him.

To be fair, if I ever came in second in a bike race I'd probably throw my hands up in the air like an idiot. But I hope I would know that I was second.

Second would be a big step up from the pack fodder that I have been. The second second place... I can see how that would be irritating.
