Despite the conditions further up the road, stage 3 of Paris-Nice got underway just after 1pm local time. The fast start saw a large group of 16 riders break free, making it over the first two climbs of the day before the majority of them were caught.
Five men were still up the road at the top of the third climb of the day, when the snowy conditions forced the organisers to put an end to the stage.
