LONDON (AP) -- A brief look at Monday's third stage of the 101st Tour de France:

Stage: The last in Britain this year, it took the riders on a 155-kilometer (96-mile) flat trek from Cambridge to London. It featured a spectacular finish on The Mall.

Winner: Marcel Kittel, who outsprinted Peter Sagan and Mark Renshaw in front of Buckingham Palace to claim his second stage win in three days, his sixth overall at the Tour.

Yellow Jersey: Vincenzo Nibali. The former Vuelta and Giro winner retained his 2-second lead over main rivals Alberto Contador and Chris Froome in the general classification.

Quote of the day: ''This was one of the fastest sprints I've ever done'' - Kittel.

Stat of the day: 65. In seconds, the time lost by 2010 champion Andy Schleck after he was involved in a high-speed crash. After three days of racing, Schleck is already lagging 2 minutes, 24 seconds behind in the overall standings.

Tuesday's stage: Stage 4 -After three nervous days in Britain, the bunch will enjoy a relatively easy 163.5-kilometer (101.5-mile) ride from Le Touquet to Lille in northern France. Another one for the sprinters.
