Stage 3 News

Spoiler Alert. Again, if you're saving the Tour de France via Tivo or some other DVR, then don't read this post until later tonight after you've watched the stage.

OK, here's a quick recap of the race after a couple hours of Stage 3...

Thomas Vaitkus of Team Discovery abandoned the Tour with a broken thumb after yesterday's crash.

187 riders are still in the 2007 Tour de France.

Tom Boonen is in Green.
David Millar is still wearing the Polka-Dot jersey.
Fabian Cancellara is still in Yellow (no update on injuries from the crash in stage 2).

Nicolas Vogondy of France had a lead of nearly 14 minutes at one point in today's stage. He was joined in his break-away by Matthieu Ladagnous.

With less than 100KM to go in the stage, the two riders in the break-away are still more than four minutes ahead of the peloton.

More to come...
