137km - The peloton is doing everything it can to make sure no riders break clear. Those at the front of the pack are pretty much working flat out.

90km - Marcus Burghardt is in no man's land right now. He's 6'40" behind the two leaders, and 3'30" ahead of the peloton. Whatever happens, he won't be seeing anyone else for a while.
