Day 3, and the Giro’s not getting any easier….  some twitter descriptions of the stage:

And I did love Tiffany Cromwell’s description, in her blog on CyclingTips:

What better way to spend your birthday than playing a real-life video game on bikes?

My race report is on Podium Café, but here are the videos and more links I like:

Want more?  of course you do!  Superb blogs from Chloe Hosking on Cyclingnews, Peta Mullens on being in the winning team on her site, and Ellen van Dijk’s blog on looking after her “little chick”, Megan Guarner.   And I interviewed ORICA-AIS rider Valentina Scandolara after the stage – read it on Podium Café.

I love these photos from Velofocus – and here’s a sweet video from him of the podium.  I also love Wei Yuet Wong‘s photos, on the Bicycling Magazine instagram, and on his tumblr.  More photos on the UnitedHealthCare facebook and on Boels-Dolmans’ website.

More videos!  The finish-line
