Giampaolo Caruso, Denis Galimzyanov, Artem Ovechkin, Joan Horrach, Mikhail Ignatyev, Nikita Eskov, Sergey Klimov, Egor Silin, Nikolay Trusov TEAM KATUSHA AT THIS RACE. I THINK OVECHKIN TEAM LEADER IN MOUNTAIN STAGES AND HE CAN WIN THERE, Galimzyanov stronger then Greipel in jule he win at sprint stages!!!

The Italians really know how to do it when it comes to Worldwide coverage of their races. The Tour could learn a thing or two

Well, stage 2 did sort the men out from the boys.

Pozzovivo won the stage from Pasquale Muto and Morris Possoni. Don;t have the rest of the results but according to Team Sky's website Possoni finished 46 seconds down and is 2nd overall, behind Pozzovivo, 32 seconds down.

Both at a remarkable distance from 2-times Junior World Champion Diego Ulissi (10th).
Sorry, I was being slightly sarcastic about riders that people have gone absolutely gaga for. Both are very good riders at an early stage in their developmnt, but both are being hyped to the point where they've little chance of ever being able to live up to what people have planned out for them in their heads.

Stage 3 results:
1. SUTTON Christopher
2. FERRARI Roberto
3. RUBIANO CHAVEZ Miguel Angel
4. BELLETTI Manuel

As expected, it finished in a bunch sprint and with the potential lead out train that Sky had they were always favourite to win.
