  • And the two groups have now joined together. About 25-30 riders in there. Luca Paolini has ridden straight past the original elite group and is chasing down the leaders.
    4/6/2014 2:21:28 PM
  • Crucially, there were two or three Cannondale riders in that second group so Sagan now has team-mates with them. The Cannondale team boss has just ordered them to the front and up the pace.

    4/6/2014 2:28:31 PM
  • Tom Boonen was dropped on the climb. He's out of the equation.
    4/6/2014 2:28:53 PM
  • Sorry, wrote Boonen off a bit too quick there. He's just rejoined the Sagan group along with Degenkolb and Thomas.

    4/6/2014 2:36:06 PM

    4/6/2014 2:40:44 PM
  • Correction: the group at 40" back is four-strong and has Boonen in it, but no Sagan.
    4/6/2014 2:41:23 PM
  • Geraint Thomas is also in the Boonen group. Up ahead, Cancellara is just taking an energy gel.
    4/6/2014 2:42:14 PM
  • 5km to go. Cancellara group > 35" > Kristoff/Terpstra > 47> Boonen group.
    4/6/2014 2:43:25 PM
  • It's between these four now. Just a reminder that it's Cancellara, Van Avermaet, Vanmarcke and Vandenbergh.
    4/6/2014 2:43:57 PM
  • Vandenbergh has done virtually no work whatsoever.
    4/6/2014 2:44:17 PM
  • Scratch that, he's just taken a turn. Working for himself now rather than team-mate Boonen.

    4/6/2014 2:47:57 PM
  • Cancellara struggling to hang on again.
