Tour de Normandie France

Team R.A.C.E. Pro reports from Stage 3 : Grand Couronne to Elbeuf 76km

Wednesday afternoon the stage went a little better with Team RACE Pro represented in the only break. From the start the racers attacked as usual. Buck Miller, Guillaume Malle and a rider of the Rietumu Bank/Riga (LAT) team countered aggressively and made the break. The peloton let up enough to give the trio 4 minutes as the race progressed into the first of two 30 km hilly circuits.

At the beginning of the second circuit, the Latvian had a mechanical failure and lost contact with the two leaders. Miller and Malle pressed on with a chance to go to the finish. They began the final circuit with a 3 minute lead. On the first climb Miller cramped and Malle pushed on solo. Miller was eventually caught by the pack with 15 km to go. Malle's solo effort almost paid off for the stage win but the peloton caught him at 1 km to the line. Ravard of Agritubel won his third group sprint victory in two days.
