Criterium International Stage 3: Popping Off the Back

Alas, Ben King (Cannondale Garmin) could quite handle the pace that was being dished out by FDJ.  As the road went up he slide further and further down through the dwindling peloton.  Finally the Richmond boy popped off the back of the group.  A few moments later he dropped his head knowing that the Maillot Jaune would not be on his shoulders at the end of the day.  With 10 kilometers left to go, he would be hoping to finish on the podium, but that will depend on just how much he has gone into the red on the climb.
