Chris Froome and Alberto Contador's first battle of 2015 augurs well for the rest of the season

www1.skysports.com — If ever there is a rider's interview quote to be taken with a helping of salt, it's that of Alberto Contador when he says he is not in ideal form for an upcoming race.

Team Sky facing a crunch year in which they have to prove themselves all over again

www1.skysports.com — It may seem a strange thing to say given the remarkable success they have enjoyed since their inception, but this is a big year for Team Sky. Arguably one of their biggest. They have shown us that a Briton can indeed win the Tour de France, not once, but twice.

Tour Down Under: Orla Chennaoui looks at the emergence of Rohan Dennis

www1.skysports.com — Last week I blogged that the Santos Tour Down Under is more than just a WorldTour warm-up, and on stage three we saw just why it matters beyond the simple accumulation of points and bouquets of flowers.

Santos Tour Down Under is much more than just a week of fun in the sun for teams and riders

www1.skysports.com — Many of us will already have seen pictures on social media of the teams rolling along the coast in the glorious sunshine, posing for the customary cuddle-a-koala shot, and generally looking like the season gets under way with a mass Lycra-clad holiday to the beach.

And so to the cobbles. After not even seeing pavé last year Froome will be happy to have support car no.1 and no time to make up #LeTour2015

@alexanderwprice @richardmoore Disproportionately more men working in professional cycling than women. It's a simple, stark, if sad, fact.

Froome takes yellow with those bonus seconds, 1" ahead of Tony Martin. Can't imagine Team Sky trying to defend that all the way to Paris.

Ouch! What a finish. Rodriguez takes stage with Froome 2nd & picking up crucial bonus seconds. Drama aplenty without even a hint of cobbles.

Riders back on their bikes. Racing will resume with 55kms to go. Surely a fairly nervous peloton from here. Results will be interesting.

RT @daniellloyd1: If people who've been in cycling for years don't understand the implementation of rules, what chance to new fans of the sport have? #TDF2015

Nasty crash, Gerrans and Dumoulin among abandons and racing stopped entirely. This is quite some stage even by Tour standards.

Landed back in London to reports of what seemed like a pretty chaotic stage. Looks like predictions of a stressful day came true #letour

Much milder day in Utrecht. Think all will be relieved to see back of stifling heat for now. Just crosswinds to worry about then...#letour
