Monaco - Bradley Wiggins (GBR), who is having a remarkable year by any measure, continued his hot streak with a brilliant 3rd place finish in the 2009 Tour de France's opening stage, a technical 15.5K individual time trial through the streets of Monaco. Of 180 starters, Wiggo's Garmin teammates Dave Zabriskie (USA), David Millar (GBR) and Christian Vande Velde (USA) also rode particularly well taking 13th, 14th and 17th, respecitively.
Way to get the party started, boys!
