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.
