Belgium's Yannick Eijssen takes charge in the mountains

Phinney survives after crash, Talansky third

Belgium’s Yannick Eijssen is the new overall race leader at the Tour de l’Avenir after winning the first mountain stage at the summit of the Col du Béal on the edge of the Massif Central.

He finished 21 seconds ahead of Darwin Atapuma (Colombia) and 26 seconds ahead of Andrew Talansky (USA), who will turn professional with Garmin-Cervelo in 2011.

Great Britain’s Alex Dowsett lost 23 minutes on the climb and so slipped to 74th overall.

The USA’s Taylor Phinney started the stage wrapped in bandages after his crash on Tuesday. He rode to help Talansky before the climb to the line and finished the stage in a small group of riders at 26 minutes.

Thursday’s hilly 183km fourth stage is from Ambert to Vals-les-Bains.
