2017 Giro Rosa Stage 3 – videos, photos, media & more

After Stage 2 of the 2017 Giro Rosa shook up the General Classification, Stage 3 was one of those typically Giro stages that look pretty benign on the profile, but could go pretty much any way –  one for sprinters, “unless it’s the exact opposite”, as Dan said in our Giro podcast preview.

There were lots of attacks, in the very fast race – and then the 2nd category climb hit, and the peloton shattered…. would it come back together or was it another day for the breakaways?

I’ve got highlights videos, results, photos and more – be careful about scrolling down if you want to avoid spoilers – and I’ve been adding all the extra videos in here as I find them, so there could be more than when you last looked!

No change to the General Classificationthe full results are here.

Race reports from Ella Cycling Tips, the race, and Cyclingnews, with photo gallery.

Team reports from Canyon-SRAM and Cervélo-Bigla with gorgeous Vélofocus pictures, Boels-Dolmans, ORICA-Scott and Sunweb, also with a gallery of images

Photo galleries on the race facebook, ORICA-Scott facebook, and more great Vélofocus images on their website.  If you, like me, like what Vélofocus do, listen to them talk about their 2017 season so far, and buy their 2017 women’s cycling photobook.

Stage 4 looks completely flat and so a guaranteed bunch sprint – but remember back in 2012 when Tiffany Cromwell “stole” a sprint stage with a 100km solo breakaway?  Guaranteed for bunch sprinting, unless it’s the exact opposite!  It starts at 12:10 CEST, so 11:10am UK BST, 6:10am USA EDT, 8:10pm Aussie AEST.  Here’s how to follow it live.

  1. I feel a little bad that before I put in the research in to follow women’s cycling in April this year, I only knew Lucinda Brand as a cyclocross racer. That was because I was able to catch free non-geolocked livestreams from Telenet CX World Cup events. You see race organisers, coverage works.

    • Don’t feel bad about it! That’s how it works – we know the riders we can see! It frustrates me that we’re still needing to be women’s cycling internet detectives to find anything other than the most basic info, in 2017!!!

      • I would still be ignorant, and apathetic and waiting for media gatekeepers and even Orica’s Backstage Pass to cover the women’s team if I didn’t crack the shits waiting week after week for ‘someone else’ to update Gracie Elvin’s wikipedia page with her historic RVV podium.
