Discovery Channel team boss Johan Bruyneel has incurred the wrath of the Tour de Georgia's race organisers, after being caught speeding during stage three. According to the official race comminiqué, Bruyneel was driving in excess of 90 miles per hour (150 km/h) and is now prohibited from driving the team car during stage five. He was also handed a fine of 200 Swiss francs.

It wasn't all bad news for Discovery though, as the American squad put both Janez Brajkovic and Gianni Meersman into the breakaway, with the latter taking the stage win in Chattanooga.
