Darryl Impey shielded and expertly guided the pocket rocket, Simon Gerrans for a saving-face stage victory on stage three. It came in due time.
Forget that two days ago, the Orica-GreenEdge bus caused mayhem but the embarrassment of 'busgate' seemed to fade to dust as Gerrans won his second Tour stage; the first for the Aussie team.
Second place for the consecutive day was the off-form Peter Sagan, injured in stage one. He has earned with consistent finishes, the coveted green jersey but he remains optimistic for a stage win. Sagan said, "I fell in the first stage and I don't feel at my best yet. But the Tour is long and there are still a lot of good stages to come."
2-man dragster race.
Simon Gerrans is a rider that wins few races but when he does they are quality races. Peter Sagan's efforts were thwarted but super Sagan ... will return!
