Hushovd Takes Stage 3 Of Tour

Thor Hushovd of Norway won a cobblestone-laden third stage of the Tour de France while Lance Armstrong was held up by a flat tire and lost time to the leaders.

Fabian Cancellara finished in a five-man group behind Hushovd but regained the yellow jersey he had given up a day earlier to Sylvain Chavanel. Armstrong, the seven-time champion, dropped to 18th place overall, 2 minutes, 30 seconds behind.

Hushovd finished ahead of Britain's Geraint Thomas and Australia's Cadel Evans in a sprint finish among the leading group of riders.

Here's Hushovd on the Stage win...
