Stage 3 - Waterville-Ballinskelligs-Portmagee-Coom an Easpaigh-Waterville. 142km.
Stage 3 started and finished in Waterville. A 142km stage around the roads of South Kerry which was an extremely rolling route and also took in the Category 1 climb of Coom an Easpaigh. Unfortunately Brian Harte who picked up a nasty injury on yesterdays stage was out of the Ras Mumhan. So Jerry, Cormac, Neil and Gareth lined up for Tralee Manor West this morning in beautiful sunshine. However strong winds added to an already tough day. Neil had a mechanical and had to switch bikes but battled on and rode very strongly. Cormac, Jerry and Gareth also impressed again today. Best of luck for the final day in Killorglin in the morning. The guys would particularly like to thank all the Tralee Manor West club members who have been giving them huge support along the roads over the past three days. It has meant a huge deal to them so thanks guys.
