The race ends today in Compiègne.

Compiègne was alsothe site of the prison of Joan of Arc - held by the English who had laid siege to the town.

It's been twinned with Bury St Edmunds, since 1967

105km - Discovery Channel sporting director Johan Museeuw on the abandonment of Tomas Vaitkus: "We have to be more quiet now. We have no sprinters anymore. We have to see if we can get to the mountains without any problem. It's definitely a big loss when you have to lose somebody in the first week. He was going to be an important guy in the first part of the race. He was there to protect the leaders on the flat stages."

94km - A situation has now developed in the stage where the peloton have slowed down, knowing they can reel in the lead duo fairly quickly whenever they like. The lead duo, meanwhile, have slowed down too to conserve energy in the hope that they might be given too much time by the peloton, and might be able to hold them off with a late charge.
