Rasmussen ends Seehafer's reign

An escape in stage three of the Route de France spelled the end of American Kori Seehafer's reign in the leader's jersey when Dane Dorte Lohse Rasmussen (Menikini - Gysko) broke away with Italian Ombretta Ugolini (USC Chirio Forno Asolo). The pair gained up to 40 seconds and were being reeled back in over the final kilometres, but the chase was left just a hair too late. Rasmussen, who sat in fourth place in the overall classification, four seconds in arrears of Seehafer at the start of the day, gained seven seconds on the Seehafer group, taking over the leader's jersey by three seconds.

Svetlana Bubnenkova led the peloton to the line ahead of Rasmussen's team-mate Miho Oki. Bubnenkova also added to her dominating lead in the mountains classification, where she sits 36 points ahead of her next competitor.
