Uneventful day in Australia


Not much to say about the Tour Down Under's third stage to be honest. Euskaltel had no one in the breaks, though Andoni was the first to attack today, or close to winning, as the peloton split in two towards the finish line in Victor Harbor. 94 riders made up the first group, among them four Euskaltel rider. Iván, 41st, Jon, 71st, Amets, 73rd and Mikel, who came in 81st, all came in on the same time as the winner, and are naturally within touching distance of overall leader Mark Renshaw. Javier, Aitor and Andoni (103rd, 107th and 110th) all came in with the second group, 4 minutes 4 seconds down. Tomorrow's 4th stage is a hint tougher than today's, so hopefully the guys will be more in the thick of it then.

what are all that guys doing? they stopped during the race? some last year spring race, if you look at the trees (and if you notice the astana and tmobiles)

Looks a bit like Iban to the left of the bike-sign, wonder if it's him? :D

It's not Iban, and I think it's a picture from the Tour, before a stage. I can't garantee it though, but I think it was something like that.

i don't think it's the Tour. the trees have no leaves, and the race numbers have no national flag and rider's names, as in the Tour
