Freire, Freire, Freire!

Yahoo! Sport | Fabulous Freire makes it three on Tirreno-Adriatico

It's like everybody is just racing for 2nd at Tirreno-Adriatico this week, as Oscar Freire of Rabobank took his third consecutive stage, outsprinting Danilo Hondo and Fabrizio Guidi.

Freire was "aw-shucks" about the three-peat:

"I didn't go out to win this stage especially, I wasn't even that well positioned for the final sprint. I had to make a special effort to get back to the front."
