British sprinter Jeremy Hunt placed third yesterday, just missing out on getting back up to the two leaders after yesterday's opening stage. "It was disappointing, we were close to them at the end. My ambition coming into the race is a stage win so we missed out today.
"I'd like to do a good ride in the worlds. I hear that a bunch sprint is expected so as I am the fastest guy [of the GB riders], I hope to get a ride."
