PIC © TIM DE WAELE Alexandr Kolobnev (CSC) won the third stage of Paris-Nice between Limoges and Maurs with an impressive solo finish. The Russian was the only survivor of a four man breakaway that escaped only two kilometres into the 215.5km stage. Tom Boonen (Quick.Step) led the peloton home for second place ahead of Daniele Bennati (Lampre). Franco Pellizotti (Liquigas) retained the overall lead. "I actually didn't think I'd make it all the way home, but I had to give it a go because I still felt strong even though it was late in the stage," said Kolobnev. "Luckily there was a descent, which was just steep enough so the main peloton couldn't catch me." The third and longest stage of Paris-Nice started in Limoges at 10:40am in sunny, warm conditions. All 159 riders who finished yesterday signed on to do today's 215.5km. After two kilometres, four riders broke clear: Fabio Baldato (Lampre), Alexandr Kolobnev (CSC), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner) and Nicolas Vogondy (Agritubel). Unlike yesterday's incredibly fast first hour, the first were able to escape the clutches of the bunch immediately, and had 1'15 by the 10 kilometre mark. Haussler took the first mountain points atop the cat. 3 Cte de St Hilaire-Bonneval (km 14.5), with Baldato and Vogondy in second and third. Meanwhile, race leader Franco Pellizotti's Liquigas cohorts settled into a pace setting tempo, allowing the leaders to gain more ground. On the cat. 3 Cote de la Grande Renaudie (km 48.5), Haussler again won the points from Vogondy and Kolobnev, as the lead grew to nearly nine minutes. At the first sprint in Lubersac (km 54.5), it was Kolobnev's turn in front, preceding Haussler and Vogondy. But a few kilometres later, it was Haussler to the fore again on the cat. 3 Cte de la Pouege. The lead maxed out at 10'20 after 84km, as the four leaders averaged a brisk 44 km/h for the first two hours. Liquigas started to chase harder, and quickly carved a minute off the lead. It was under six minutes with 55 km to go, and that didn't look to be enough for the break to succeed. The front quartet hit the last climb of the day, the cat. 2 Cte du Fangas (km 173) with a 4'10 lead over Remmert Wielinga (Saunier Duval), who had attacked the bunch. The peloton was only another 25 seconds back, and the Dutch chaser was caught. At the top of the climb, Haussler won the points, securing the mountains jersey for the day. But the bunch had survived the climb intact, and with 30 km left, the leaders had just three minutes. Quick.Step combined with Liquigas to assist in the chase, and pulled the gap back to 1'05 with 15km left. This prompted Kolobnev to attack his breakaway companions, who were all swept up at seven kilometres to go. Kolobnev still had 24 seconds with three kilometres left, and put in an incredible ride to hold off the bunch by 12 seconds. Tom Boonen had to be content with second place, his best result of the tour so far. Franco Pellizotti finished 66th in the stage and held onto the leader's jersey. Tomorrow's fourth stage is from Maurs la Jolie to Mende over 169.5km. It ends with a tough cat. 1 climb - La Croix Neuve, Monte Laurent Jalabert. which averages 10.1% for 3.1km.
