  • Noticeable that BMC Racing and Movistar, who do not boast a sprinter worthy of the name, have moved to the front keen to avoid any accidents for Cadel Evans and Nairo Quintana.
    5/10/2014 2:46:20 PM
  • Andrea Fedi wins the sprint in Carrickfergus but you would think the red jersey will be won at the finish line. Rain heavy where the peloton is riding through but dry in Belfast as Francesco Chicchi, one of the leading Italian sprinters, has an untimely mechanical.

  • 15kms to go for our intrepid leading quartet
    5/10/2014 2:49:15 PM
  • Coming into the final 10kms at a hell of a pace now. The lead is 54 seconds and falling fast. Let's just hope everyone makes it to the finish line in one piece. Cannondale on the front for Viviani
    5/10/2014 2:55:11 PM
  • Romero has been dropped by the other three leaders
    5/10/2014 2:56:34 PM
  • Grey skies overhead as Tjallingii tries to break the other two leading riders
    5/10/2014 2:57:26 PM
  • Looks like Fedi and Armee have given up the ghost as well. They can't keep up with the Dutchman, whose team-mate Jos van Emden has suffered a puncture at the back.
    5/10/2014 2:58:15 PM
  • Cannondale burying themselves on the front. Plenty of Team Sky riders have come to the fore as well
    5/10/2014 2:58:58 PM

  • 5/10/2014 2:59:25 PM
  • Five kilometres left for Tjallingii and his lead is around 20 seconds
    5/10/2014 3:01:01 PM
  • FDJ moving up for Nacer Bouhanni
    5/10/2014 3:01:15 PM
  • It's going to be all over for Tjallingii in a matter of seconds, just as we come towards the last 3km. You were told...
    5/10/2014 3:02:27 PM
  • And now Trek come to the front for Nizzolo and possibly Van Poppel. Giant-Shimano are right there as well. Peloton strung out
    5/10/2014 3:03:29 PM
  • Chris Sutton pulls some horrific faces on the front for Sky - setting this up for Swift?
    5/10/2014 3:04:36 PM
  • FDJ and Giant are going all out for this
    5/10/2014 3:05:07 PM
  • Final kilometre - see you at the finish line!
    5/10/2014 3:05:21 PM
  • Giant, Orica, Cannondale and FDJ all going hard
    5/10/2014 3:05:43 PM
  • Kittel wins!
    5/10/2014 3:06:29 PM
  • That was all too easy for the big German. He had a clear run to the line and got the first run on Bouhanni, who appeared to take second ahead of Nizzolo. We await confirmation of the final result.
    5/10/2014 3:07:07 PM
  • Front three as given previously followed home by Viviani, Ferrari, Belletti, Swift, Matthews, Appollonio and Farrar rounding out the top 10
    5/10/2014 3:08:06 PM

  • 5/10/2014 3:08:48 PM

  • 5/10/2014 3:10:12 PM
  • Because of a gap in the peloton, it appears Michael Matthews will be taking the pink jersey from his Orica Greenedge team-mate Svein Tuft. Awaiting confirmation.
    5/10/2014 3:13:46 PM
  • And here is it - the man they know as Bling is the new leader. Australia celebrates!
