Everyday when I talked to the Sucessfull Living team, the team plan always included that Ricardo Escuela was going to win stage 3, the twilight crit at the Tour of Utah. And the fast Argentinean delivered the goods, outsprinting Fast Freddie Rodriguez (Rock Racing) to the line. Toyota-United’s Jonnie Clarke was third.
Oh and one of Salt Lake City’s finest was giving out jaywalking tickets during the race. Almost got one.
No changes in the overall general classification. The stage is set for a shoot out on Saturday’s Queen stage as only 38 seconds separate 12 contenders from Caldwell. Stage 4 is the 98.1-mile (159 km) Snowbird Road Race that starts in Park City, climbs over five KOMs to the mountain top finish at Snowbird Ski Resort in Little Cottonwood Canyon – a total 14,778 feet of climbing.
No changes in the other jerseys either.
Easier to let the photos do the talking…
