After three stages, cross-country skier Alex Harvey leads the prestigious 2013-14 Tour de Ski. The Canadian took back the men’s overall leader’s bib in the seven-race Tour after finishing second in Switzerland on New Year’s Eve.

Harvey started strong on December 28, winning the opening stage – 4.5 kilometre freestyle – ahead of fellow Canadian Devon Kershaw. Harvey finished 11th in the second stage before returning to the podium on Tuesday.

Kershaw is currently eighth overall.

Tour de Ski will end in Italy on January 5.
