Stage 3 win has been grabbed by Tyler Farrar that took place in Beijing. Gilbert has the lead in Beijing. He ended the drought which was long awaited. The stage of the tour was long with 176 km with climbs and descents which are considered to be rapid and dangerous. He was nowhere to grab the stage but he came and grabbed it. Luka Mezgec and Nikolas Maes were ahead of him but he took speed and went ahead. It was sheer luck by which he could lead and emerge as the winner. He had to face a tough time in the race.
He came out of the corner to go ahead and perform. For the year it was his first victory. It took time to emerge but it came in the season. He was holding on to the position of second, third and fourth but not first and finally he got the first position. Weather cleared after some time and that is when the riders got into a comfortable position. After some time, conditions eased out and the riders again gained momentum. Despite conditions not working in their favour the riders put in all their hard work to put up a great riding performance at the circuit.
It takes courage to go out there and beat all the odds. Attacks are frequent and that is what occurred but it soon died down, owing to the determination put up by the riders. In fact Farrar was able to predict his fortune on the appointed day. The climbers are not as good but he was in a good position. He put in his effort which showed clearly in his performance. He was in charge of the brownie points which he achieved by his skill and tactics in the ride.
