Tour of the North - Stage 3: Limavady

Planet X's Stephen Barrett took 6th position in today's 80-mile stage. Martyn Irvine was awarded the KOH Jersey.

Stephen Barrett finished the day in the front group on a day which saw the Planet X squad improve on yesterday's result.

To avoid areas of heavy snow in the Limavady area, the stage was changed to 4 x 20-mile laps.

Right from the start, Martyn Irvine (top) went on the attack and spent most of the day off the front peloton in one group or another and has been rewarded with the KOH Jersey for his toil. Martyn said on Twitter, "Hard day although I made it a bit harder".

On lap 3 the front group contained four Planet X riders when Martyn Irvine punctured and had to battle his way to the front after a wheel change.
