German strongman Marcel Kittel reaffirmed his status as the world’s top sprinter, convincingly winning stage 3 of the Tour de France on Monday in London. The Giant-Shimano rider out-kicked Cannondale’s Peter Sagan, with Aussie Mark Renshaw trailing across in third. It was Kittel’s second stage win in three days. He also grabbed the race opener in Harrogate on Saturday.

In the fight for the yellow jersey there was no change, with Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) finishing safely in the bunch to maintain his grasp of the race leader’s yellow jersey. This was the final day of the Tour’s three-day dalliance in Great Britain. After two stages in Yorkshire and the stage 3 run from Cambridge to London, the race caravan heads across the English Channel to France. Stage 4 from Le Touquet-Paris-Plage to Lille is another day earmarked for the sprinters.
