178km - Today's stage could get a bit hot. The sun is out, and the temperature at the moment is a sweat-inducing 28°C.

175km - Grivko is hauled back in by the peloton already, while Wiggins appears to be running out of steam too. His lead has been cut to 6'10".

The route now comes almost alongside the famous Autoroute du Soleil - which generations of British tourists have taken en route to pleasant holiday destinations. Wiggins' lead is becoming significant now, at 9:30. Where are the likes of McEwen or Tom Boonen?

171km - Having caught Grivko and in the knowledge that Wiggins isn't known for his stamina, the peloton have eased up a little and the gap has grown to 8'40".

165km - best wishes go out to Francaise des Jeux's Sebastien Joly, who has just learnt has testicular cancer. Lance Armstrong, who also suffered from that form of cancer, has apprently already sent a mail of support to the rider.

Seems Wiggins in now 17m20s ahead.... I'm guessing he will be asked to provide a sample as he crosses the line?

The lead has fallen to 16m50s although they are going over the hills, so expect some change......

148km - 1st Intermediate Sprint (Bligny): Wiggins takes the six points and six bonnus seconds. We'll have to wait another fourteen minutes for the peloton to arrive to see who picks up the remaining points.

136km - Cancellara has fallen at the top of the Grandmont, but it's not a serious one. He has changed bikes, but with his time-trialling ability should have no problem getting back to the peloton.
