80km - Our two leaders have been out on their own for 145 kilometres now. The good news for them is that the rain has passed and the sun is out.

79km - Lampre have confirmed that Danilo Napolitano will be their man for the sprint today, as Daniele Bennati's hip is still hurting from the crash yesterday. Alessandro Ballan and Claudio Corioni will lead out Napolitano.

39km - A fall in the peloton! But it's only a small one. Gert Steegmans, yesterday's stage winner, has gone over along with Alexander Botcharov. They're both back up soon though.

35km - The polkadot jersey is in the offing for Stephane Auge. If he is among the first three to cross the top of the upcoming Cote de Blerancourt then he will take the jersey from David Millar.

30km - 3'20" is the gap with 30 kilometres to go. The peloton are still big favourites to reel them in, but the quartet now have hope.

22km - Credit Agricole and Quickstep are really putting their foot on the gas now. They are keen to give Hushovd and Boonen respectively a chance in the sprints. They've brought it down to 2'40".
