Criterium International Stage 3: Down to Two

Chad Haga (Giant Alpecin) and Romain Feillu (Bretagne Seche) managed to ride away from their other three break away companions as they headed into Porto Vecchio.  With an intermediate sprint just ahead, Feillu convinced Haga to let him have the sprint bonus.  In a break, riders will often work out deals and alliances so that they can reach mutual benefits from their efforts.  The pair were also hoping to hit the final climb up the Col d'Ospedale with a couple of minutes advantage.
