174km - An attack from the Stephane Auge. He clearly wants to keep hold of his polkadot jersey...but he's swiftly eaten up by the pack.

170km - More and more attacks are coming now, though the fast pace of the peloton has so far kept things together.

168km - Sylvain Chavanel goes now as the peloton rolls into Nitry! He was in a long breakaway yesterday, though his legs are clearly still feeling good. He leads by a few metres at the moment.

162km - Sylvain Chavanel is adamanant he will escape! He attacks again, and is followed this time by FdJ's Philippe Gilbert and Credit Agricole's William Bonnet. Giampaolo Cheula of Barloworld tried to go with them but couldn't match their tempo. The trio have now opened up a gap of 30 seconds on the field.

157km - Cheula is struggling to make up the ground on the lead trio. He has it twice as hard working on his own. He's 55 seconds off the pace, while the peloton are 1'45" back.

153km - So the escape group of the day has been formed. We're just waiting to see whether Cheula can join them. The latest splits are 1'55" from the leaders back to the Italian and 4'00" back to the pack.
