Richie Porte of Saxo Bank blew away the competition in the stage three time trial at the Tour de Romandie, as the only rider to break 31 minutes on the 23.4km long course. The 25-year-old Australian needed only 30:54 to take his first professional win. Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d'Epargne) was second in 31:20, with Katusha's Vladimir Karpets third at 31:21.

The time trial brought about major changes in the overall rankings, as HTC-Columbia's Michael Rogers used a fourth place finish to take over general classification. Previous GC leader Peter Sagan (Liquigas-Doimo) finished the time trial 1:36 down on Porte and dropped to 19th overall.

Rogers now leads by two seconds ahead of Valverde, and five seconds ahead of third-placed Karpets.

The win was "a massive surprise for me," Porte said. "I can't believe it. I was 30 seconds down at the first time check, the winds must have changed. It's unbelievable!"

The Australian credited his success to training with Bradley McGee, who he said "was a big help. I have done everything he said." It wasn't his first major time trial win as Porte won a time trial stage at the Baby Giro d'Italia in 2009.

Former world champion Bert Grabsch of HTC-Columbia put in an early best time, but the course was actually too short for his skills. Porte arrived at the finish about half an hour later, blasting the German's time by an amazing minute and a half.

Later riders brought in good times, but no one was able to come close. Caisse d'Epargne's Alejandro Valverde set top times at the intermediate time checks, but still was able to cover the course in only 31:20.

Denis Menchov of Rabobank was said to be suffering from allergies, but the problem was not evident in his ride, as he finished fifth with a time of 31:25.

Ivan Basso (Liquigas) put in a disappointing time of 32:44, putting him well down in the rankings.

A visibly nervous Peter Sagan (Liquigas) was the last to take to the course, clad in the leader's yellow from top to bottom. His time of 32:29 was only good for 30th place, dropping him out of the overall lead.

Marco Pinotti, who won the prologue for HTC-Columbia, was unable to come close to his top performance. The Italian time trial champion finished 1:22 down in 19th place.
