The 3rd stage of the Tour de France was a dramatic one that saw Serge Pauwles in the breakaway, a massive crash that brought the stage to a hault and then the finish up the infamous Mur de Huy. Gruber Images caught all the action as they do best..
The 3rd stage of the Tour de France saw Joquim Rodriguez (Katusha) take the victory atop the Mur de Huy, just ahead of Chris Froome (Team Sky) and Alexis Vuillermoz (AG2R La Mondiale). Froome would also move into the yellow jersey. The day would start of positively for our African team as Serge Pauwels got into the break of the day, escaping with 3 other riders from kilometer zero. While the break was caught with around 60km to go, Serge‘s efforts were well rewarded as the first Belgian across the line at kilometer 15 would win a car. Being the only Belgian in the break,.
The 2nd stage of the Tour de France lived up to its expectations of having the weather, and particularly the wind affecting the race. A small group of 20 odd riders sprinted it out for the win with Andre Greipel (Lotto-Soudal) taking the victory ahead of Peter Sagan (Tinkoff-Saxo) and Fabian Cancellara (Trek Factory Racing). A 4 rider group initially escaped from kilometer zero but when the wind picked up with around 110km to go, Tinkoff-Saxo put the main group into the gutter and caused a few splits in the peloton. The injection of pace caused the break to be caught with 100km to go..
