TdF: Fabian Cancellara takes Stage 3! Wow!

2007 Tour de France Stage 3 AMAZING SPRINT FINISH! CSC's Fabian Cancellara hammered hard over the cobbles in the last kilometer of Stage 3 and won Stage 3 of the Tour de France, passing up some of the favorites in the peloton such as Robbie McEwen, Tom Boonen and Erik Zabel. That final sprint was amazing to watch as the Yellow Jersey took the lead and the rest of the pack tried to catch him but falling short at the finish line.

Tom Boonen retains the point leader green jersey, while Stephane Auge takes the polka dots as King of the Mountains. The Stage 3 results:
1 Fabian Cancellara (Swi) Team CSC
2 Erik Zabel (Ger) Milram
3 Danilo Napolitano (Ita) Lampre-Fondital
4 Tom Boonen (Bel) Quickstep-Innergetic
5 Robert Hunter (RSA) Barloworld
6 Robert Förster (Ger) Gerolsteiner
7 Robbie McEwen (Aus) Predictor-Lotto
8 Bernhard Eisel (Aut) T-Mobile
9 Mark Cavendish (GBr) T-Mobile
10 Heinrich Haussler (Ger) Gerolsteiner

Howdy,

As always, great site. Could I make a small request that folks not put race results in the headline? I clicked on your feed in my feedreader and learned who won the race I'll be watching on the rebroadcast tonight.

Thanks for all the great articles!
