Tour Down Under Stage 3: Little Help?

The Frenchman, Jeremy Maison (FDJ) holds out his arm to call his team car forward.  He does have radio, but it is just easier to talk directly to the team director through the window, plus you can get a bidon and a bite to eat at the same time  On Clement's wheel is Vegard Laengen riding for one of the new teams on the Pro Tour, UAE-Abu Dhabi.  They are joined in the break away by Clement Chevrier (Ag2r) and Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal).  De Gendt went out in search of KOM points in hopes of pulling on the Polka Dot jersey at the end of the day.  He achieved that goal by tying the score of race leader, Richie Porte (BMC) who will still be in the Ochre Jersey of race leader tomorrow (should nothing unexpected happen on the run in to the finish).
