Gerard’s been busily snapping away at this year’s Dauphine Libere and while Stage Four of the race is getting underway here’s a quick update on yesterday’s results.

It was the American riders who showed impressive form in the Stage Three Time-Trail around the Bourg-de-Peage, with David Zabriskie (US/Team CSC) coming in ahead of Floyd Landis (U.S./Phonak), Levi Leipheimer (U.S./Gerolsteiner) and George Hincapie (U.S./Discovery Channel).

Philippe Gilbert (Bel/Francaise des Jeux) has retained the overall lead with Zabriskie now sitting in second place.
