Stage 3- a dead stage

Today's stage was what I know know is called a 'dead' stage- that is, all the teams with hot gc contenders just sat tight and watched, saving their legs for this arvo's stage. A break of 4 got away early, but because none were a gc threat, teams were under instruction not to worry too much. The break actually stayed away- just- they were almost pipped on the line but Prime Estate's Irene Diginis, who had been in the break all day, held everyone off to claim the win.

I was in the bunch, trying to stay near the front and ready to go if a big attack went.So with a bunch kick finish, nothing much changed in the overall standings.

And the rain miraculously stopped for us! Awesome.

This afternoon we have an 11km TT, starting at 5pm.
