Future watch: stage 3

Mikel Landa showed climbing is his forte by clinching sixth on today's third stage of the Tour de l'Avenir to the top of the cat. 1 Col de Beal. The 20-year-old finished up 1:06 down on solo winner Yannick Eijssen on today's hilly ride, Eijssen who'll cut his teeth on the pro circuit next year with the BMC outfit of John Lelangue. Landa also climbed his way into the top 10 overall due to his strong showing today, settling in at seventh place 1:19 adrift of the same man. All-rounder Jon Izagirre wasn't quite up to it today, crossing the line 17:14 back in 65th place. The parcours was too mountainous for Izagirre's taste, and he's now 55th on GC, well and truly out of contention.
