Stage 3 - May 14: Port La Nouvelle – Port La Nouvelle ITT, 5.5 km

Gunnewijk reclaims the jersey

By Kristy Scrymgeour

Loes Gunnewijk (Buitenpoort-Flexpoint Team) took out the short 5.5km time trial today to take her second stage for the tour and taking the yellow jersey back from her teammate Susanne Ljungskog. Being the only rider to break seven minutes, Gunnewijk put five seconds into Ljungskog, Judith Arndt (T-Mobile) and Priska Doppmann and now leads the tour over Ljungskog, keeping the yellow jersey within the team going into stage four.

The time trial started along the promenade of Port Nouvelle and was dead flat with a turn around and two other corners. Today the l'Aude region put on better weather than stage two, with sun and little wind welcoming riders to the start line.

Gunnewijk's win adds to a successful year so far with a third place in Ronde Van Vlaanderen and consistent strong performances along the way. Despite working hard for the team in the mountains yesterday, Gunnewijk still hangs on to the jersey for the team with her strong time trialing ability.

Tomorrow's stage starts and finishes in Lezignan Corbieres and includes a category 1 and category 2 climb in the first half of the race. With 60km remaining from the top of the second climb we may in fact see a day for the sprinters.
