TDF 2009: Stage 3 Update: At 4.3 KM Split nearing finish

A split 28-man group consisting of Team Columbia riders, with George Hincapie and other riders split off from the peleton and are now a few kilometers from the finish. Among the riders are Fabian Cancellara who though is not a sprinter, could do more at the finish.

Sastre, Contador, and many others missed the split, and now many miss the final sprint at the end.

The strong cross winds, as we predicted, affected the race and split the 179 riders.
