We are pleased with our prediction! As I wrote yesterday, "I won't be surprised if tomorrow's winner edges our time once again." The athletes are impressing us this year! Seeing the Tour de France unfold gives us the opportunity to appreciate how months of training and new technologies employed in equipment pay off.
Below is Gerrans's average speed for today.
- Stage 3: 10.95 m/s (39.43 kph or 24.50 mph)
Despite his 19th place finish today, Jan Bakelants retains the coveted yellow jersey with a one-second lead over Julien Simon of France. Gerrans's big win today gets him classified third overall.
