Nicholas Roche placed third in the third stage of Paris-Nice today. Paris-Nice is one of the most prestigious of the regular stage races (not a grand tour) and has been won a record number of times by Sean Kelly.

Dan Martin (Nicholas's cousin) is also in the race. He's doing fine, but as he's a climber rather than sprinter, he hasn't had much chance to show his stuff so far.

This is looking like a good season for the Irish cyclists in the upper echelons. Roche in particular has started very strongly, and has proven that he can climb and sprint.
