Tirreno 3: Andy Schleck back to the front :D

Embedded image permalinkI know: that isn't exactly the news of the day. Maybe it isn't a news at all because he's where he used to be, at his own place. In Indicatore today - you'll have report and pictures tomorrow - I shortly talked with him: he looked relaxed and serene. There was a true rain storm when they tooke the start. At a certain point somebody fell - without consequences - and Andy had to stop with many others because he was at the back, but on the climb he was in front, pedaling in the first row. Nice to see! And sure it takes you a while to get back the confidence you used to have after a long stop dued to a serious injury. In Camaiore he told me he has no doubt and I see he's on the right track: day by day and race after race. Steadlily.  
There have been a break (Benedetti and Failli), some attacks (Boom, Rabottini, Lagutin) and a bunch sprint (1 Sagan 2 Cavendish 3 Greipel 4 Ciolek). Cavendish kept the leader jersey.
PS
A picture of Andy pedaling in front? just wait :)

The peloton rode at a steady pace on the climb and on the following hills, with the only disruption when Andy Schleck (RadioShack-Leopard) appeared to have a mechanical problem and put his foot down, blocking the riders behind him. They all quickly got going again.
BUT tv didn't show it so I don't know...
