Le Tour de France Stage 3 Results: Simon Gerrans Beats Peter Sagan, Jan Bakelants Holds The Yellow Jersey

2013 Tour de France Stage 3 winner, Simon Gerrans of Orica Greenedge.
Australia's Simon Gerrans sprinted for the finish of Stage 3 of the 2013 Tour de France today, narrowly beating Peter Sagan for the victory.  Today's win is the first Tour stage victory for Team Orica Greenedge.

Stage 3 was 145 kilometers, or about 90 miles.  It started in Ajaccio and ended in Calvi, all on the island of Corsica.

Jan Bakelants will hold on to the prized yellow jersey for another day.  Gerrans won the stage but not by enough to create a gap in his general classification time.

We'll post photos from the stage as soon as they are available.  Bookmark this page and come back later this morning.
