Tour of Flanders 2014 live

  • 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.

  • Terpstra accelerates ahead. Cancellara forced to follow.
    4/6/2014 1:46:16 PM

    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).

  • 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

    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

    Cancellara group > 11" > Kristoff > 22" > Sagan group
    4/6/2014 2:38:41 PM
  • Kristoff sitting up. He's wanting some help.
    4/6/2014 2:39:07 PM
  • Now Kristoff is joined by Terpstra and they put the foot back down. 26" behind.
    4/6/2014 2:39:37 PM
  • 8km to go...
    4/6/2014 2:39:44 PM
  • Looks like the front four are too far ahead to be caught now. 27" ahead with 7.5km to go. Sagan group is 40" back.
    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 2:44:53 PM
  • Vandenbergh attacks!
    4/6/2014 2:44:58 PM
  • Van Avermaet follows but Cancellara is struggling to respond and has been dropped!
    4/6/2014 2:45:36 PM
  • Vanmarcke counter-attacks and starts shutting down the gap. Cancellara hanging on grimly here.
    4/6/2014 2:46:00 PM
  • Front four back together after Vanmarcke counter-attack. 2km to go.
    4/6/2014 2:46:25 PM

    4/6/2014 2:46:51 PM
  • 1.5km to go. The front four have started to look around now. Chase group 25" back.

    4/6/2014 2:47:57 PM

  • Sprint coming up...
