Tour of Flanders 2014 live

  • Topsport's Kenneth Van Bilsen has just jumped from the peloton and will be aiming to bridge over to the Bernhard Eisel group.
    4/6/2014 1:25:00 PM
  • The front group are on the Oude Kwaremonth and three riders have already fallen off the pace leaving three in front.
    4/6/2014 1:26:11 PM
  • Bernhard Eisel is caught on the Oude Kwaremont but Geraint Thomas and Luke Rowe are well positioned at the front of the bunch.
    4/6/2014 1:28:08 PM

    1st group: Phinney, Impey, Broeckx
    2nd group: Trentin, Keukeleire, Zingle, Vanlandschoot
    Peloton +47"
    4/6/2014 1:31:30 PM
  • Another HUGE crash and Devolder is down again. Four Tinkoff-Saxo riders involved.
    4/6/2014 1:32:33 PM
  • Agony written all over Devolder's face as he holds his arm. Looks bad.
    4/6/2014 1:32:52 PM
  • The second group has swelled after three more riders joined. One from Team Sky, two from OPQS. Phinney currently leading front three up the Paterberg.
    4/6/2014 1:33:30 PM
  • Unbelievable. Devolder is back on his bike and currently struggling his way up the Paterberg. That is one tough guy. He looked finished.
    4/6/2014 1:36:08 PM
  • Wow, the peloton has been blown to pieces by that earlier Devolder and the subsequent climb up the Paterberg. Only about 20-25 riders in there and then there's a big gap to the rest of the bunch.
    4/6/2014 1:39:27 PM
  • OPQS are on the front of the "peloton", if we can still call it that. Boonen, Sagan, Cancellara, Thomas all present.
    4/6/2014 1:41:21 PM
  • The breakaway trio are now on the Koppenberg, with it's brutal 25 per cent ramps.
    4/6/2014 1:42:07 PM
  • The intermediate chase group has been caught, so this is the situation:

    Phinney, Broeckx, Impey > 25" > peloton
    4/6/2014 1:43:01 PM
  • Peloton going up the steepest part of the Koppenberg now. Boonen accelerates, but no attack. Cancellara and Sagan right up there. Front three about to be caught.
    4/6/2014 1:44:07 PM
  • Degenkolb and Geraint Thomas also still up at the head of the race.
    4/6/2014 1:44:38 PM
  • Massive grimace from Cancellara. The Koppenberg seriously hurt for the Swiss maestro.
    4/6/2014 1:44:58 PM
  • Looks like there was a big selection on the Koppenberg there. Less than 20 riders at the front of the race. They've joined up with the breakaway now.
    4/6/2014 1:46:00 PM
  • Terpstra accelerates ahead. Cancellara forced to follow.
    4/6/2014 1:46:16 PM
  • Cancellara successfully shut Terpstra's move down so the front group is back together again. Riders who had been dropped on the Koppenberg climb starting to latch back on now. 42km to go.
    4/6/2014 1:47:54 PM
  • Looks like both Cancellara and Sagan are on their own in the front group. No team-mates to help them in the closing stages.
    4/6/2014 1:52:20 PM
  • Stijn Vandenbergh (OPQS) has accelerated ahead of the front group and has been followed by Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky) and a Dries Devenyns (Giant-Shimano).
    4/6/2014 1:54:53 PM
  • Boasson Hagen moving ahead now as the front three make their way up the Taaienberg.
    4/6/2014 1:56:13 PM
  • Vandenbergh dropped by EBH and Devenyns. Greg van Avermaet attacked out of the peloton on the Taaienberg but he has Vandenbergh are about to be swallowed back up.
    4/6/2014 1:57:30 PM
  • Just Boasson Hagen and Devenyns in the lead now. Small gap. Chase group is down to about 15 riders after Taaienberg climb. Sagan, Cancellara, Boonen all there.
    4/6/2014 1:58:36 PM
  • That was a big selection. Here's the new situation:

    Boasson Hagen, Devenyns > 11" > Cancellara group
    4/6/2014 1:59:21 PM
  • John Degenkolb is in the Cancellara chase group. He's done brilliantly to still be there.
    4/6/2014 1:59:51 PM
  • Geraint Thomas didn't make it into this new group, which is 11 riders strong.
    4/6/2014 2:00:35 PM
  • EBH and Devenyns are sitting up and waiting for the rest of the group to rejoin them.
    4/6/2014 2:01:07 PM
  • EBH and Devenyns caught.
    4/6/2014 2:02:48 PM
  • Here's who is in this elite front group: Cancellara, Sagan, Boonen, Vanmarcke, Degenkolb, Leukemans, Vandenbergh, Terpstra, Stybar, Minard, Van Avermaet, Devenyns, Boasson Hagen.
    4/6/2014 2:03:10 PM
  • Four OPQS riders in the front group: Boonen, Terpstra, Stybar, Vandenbergh. As I write, Devenyns attacking again. Working hard for Degenkolb.
    4/6/2014 2:05:10 PM
  • At present, 25% of you reckon Fabian Cancellara will win, according to the poll, and the bookmakers agree, with Sky Bet going 6/4 on the Swiss. He’s the favourite, followed by Peter Sagan (3/1) and Tom Boonen (6/1). Bet in-running here.
    4/6/2014 2:05:23 PM
  • Devenyns reeled back in but Van Avermaet immediately attacks. Vandenbergh chases.
    4/6/2014 2:06:20 PM
  • 30km to go and Van Avermaet and Vandenbergh have 11secs over the rest of the group. The third group on the road is a further 19secs back.
    4/6/2014 2:07:56 PM
  • Nicki Sorensen (Tinkoff-Saxo) has bridged across to the front group. Fine effort.
    4/6/2014 2:09:24 PM

    4/6/2014 2:10:40 PM

    4/6/2014 2:12:22 PM
  • Attack from Sep Vanmarcke 26km out.
    4/6/2014 2:12:40 PM
  • Amazingly, Degenkolb is the man who shuts it down.
    4/6/2014 2:13:15 PM
  • Here's the situation:

    Van Avermaet/Vandenbergh > 25sec > Cancellara/Sagan group
    4/6/2014 2:13:50 PM
  • Niki Terpstra attacks. Bjorn Leukemans and Sep Vanmarcke follow.
    4/6/2014 2:14:11 PM
  • Terpstra and Vanmarcke have fallen back into the group but Leukemans is still up ahead and trying to bridge across to Van Avermaet and Vandenbergh.
    4/6/2014 2:16:32 PM
  • Now Sebastien Minard attacks and sets off in pursuit of Leukemans. The rest gradually follow.
    4/6/2014 2:17:17 PM
  • A new addition to the elite group as Luca Paolini bridges across. Amazing effort.
    4/6/2014 2:20:13 PM
  • Actually, there's a large group about to join the elite front group. There are about 15-20 in that group, including Geraint Thomas.
