Stage 3 - Tour de l'Aude

Superstar youngster Vos wins her 2nd stage,
veteran Judith Arndt retains the leader's jersey,
while former husker Amber Neben slips to 24th. But, Neben, known as a "classy climber" may just charge back up the standings when the really hard ascents begin.
www.cyclingnews.com presents the 23rd Tour de l'Aude: "The women's cycling phenomenon that is Marianne Vos (Team DSB Bank) added another page to her amazing career story today, taking her second stage victory in the 23rd Tour de l'Aude. Despite being the 20 year-old's first attempt at what's dubbed the toughest race on the women's calendar, Vos has shown her incredible talent in full effect over the opening stages of the tour."

I don't have to come up with a poem for "Amber Neben, classy climber" do I? :^)
She is still doing well. Would be great to see her three-peat!

Okay, you talked me into it.
But has to be the last time.

Amber Neben is a classy climber
In the mountains she will leave them all behind her
And through the general category she will rise
To take the Tour de l'Aude's highest prize

A sad and pathetic niche, but niche none the less.
Should have studied poetry more in college I guess. Never thought I would have the chance to use it! :^)
