La Méditerranéen Stage 3 Results

Belarusian Yauheni Hutarovich (Française des Jeux) won stage three in a bunch sprint at the Tour Méditerranéen on Friday, bringing his total to two stage wins for the event thus far. Hutarovich’s teammate Jussi Veikkanen leads the overall.

“Today, we showed that we were strong in controlling the race. Psychologically, it’s important,” said Marc Madiot the manager of Française des Jeux to AFP.

Members of the break that got away and stayed for awhile included Stéphane Augé (Cofidis), Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d’Epargne) and Alexander Vinokourov (Astana). Augé initiated it at five kilometers into the race. They managed to keep their effort going for more than 70km, but the Française des Jeux riders were careful to not let gap of the leaders exceed one minute and 30 seconds.
