Giro Stage 3: Over He Goes

As the break slogged its way up the six kilometer long climb up the Baragelata, it was Pavel Kochetkov (Katusha) who jumped away from his compatriots to claim the maximum King of the Mountain points on offer.  His effort not only distanced the others, it also ensured that he would be on the podium in Sestri Levante to receive the Azure Blue King of the Mountains jersey.  It is amazing to be able to see one of the TV Moto camera men in action.  These talented and brave videographers will stand on the rear pegs of their motorcycles to capture the powerful images that reveal the story of the race.
