Dutch cyclist Nikki Terpstra won the 182-kilometre-long third stage of France's Dauphine Libere race. He also took the yellow jersey from Australian Cadel Evans to be the new overall leader.

AFP - Dutch rider Nikki Terpstra won the third stage of the Dauphine Libere cycle race here on Tuesday and in the process took over the overall race leader's yellow jersey.
  
He edged past Frenchman Ludovic Turpin and Russian Yuri Trofimov to take the 182 kilometre stage from Tournus.
  
The trio were part of a five-man breakaway which got ahead of the main group 30 kilometres into the stage. Although the peloton reduced the lead from six minutes down to a matter of seconds, the leading quintet managed to keep ahead.
  
Terpstra took the yellow jersey off Australian Cadel Evans.
