Tour of Beijing stage 3

After suffering in the opening two days from the after-effects of a bout of gastroenteritis, today's performance on day three of the Tour of Beijing shows the riders are on the mend. Jon Izagirre tried his luck in the break of the day, while Antón scored points on the two last KOMs of the day to move into the lead in that particular competition.

The hilly nature of the stage saw the peloton split up considerably towards the end. Antón, Samu and Nieve all came in with the 50-man strong lead group, while Txurruka and A Pérez ended up 3:10 in arrears. Astarloza and Landa crossed the line a further 18 seconds down, with Izagirre finishing inside a small group 8:07 back.

I wish they gave UCI Points for KOM classification.
