Women's Tour of New Zealand: Garfoot wins stage three

Guarnier back into the overall lead

Katrin Garfoot continued her return to form after a knee injury derailed the start of the season winning stage three of the Women's Tour of New Zealand from a eight rider front group. First leader of the race, Megan Guarnier, was second  to continue Team USA's success at the race while Lauren Stephens (TIBCO-SVB) was third.

Garfoot took out the women's Oceania time trial title last week which she followed up by placing third in the sprint for the road race and currently sits in third place overall with two stages to come.

Guarnier moved back into the overall lead, deposing teammate Lauren Hall from the yellow jersey and now leads teammate Evelyn Stevens by three seconds.

Gabrielle Pilote-Fortin (DNA Cycling p/b K4), tenth on the stage, is the new leader of the best young rider classification.
