Juan José Haedo (Saxo Bank-SunGard) won the third stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico today in Perugia. The Argentinean jumped World Champion Thor Hushovd and Tyler Farrar to mark one of his biggest victories.

"My team did a huge about of work, Garmin surprised me in the last kilometres," said Haedo. "I had the legs though to be there and to make the sprint. It was not a surprise for me, I had confidence."
