Dauphine Libere - Stage 3

For the first time in a long time a time trial did nothing for me. And that is absolutely nothing against the riders or the race. Just couldn't seem to get into the stage. Some log in issues with ctv this week are not helping either. But, the stage did sort a few things. Valverde took first with Levi 19 secs behind. George was passed by Levi and came in 2.32 behind. I'm hoping it is just some lack of sleep and work stuff and hopefully the odd funk will soon be gone. :-)
