Jury is well and truly hung over sprinters chances to retain contact over final climb - short but steep apparently.

VUILLERMOZ Alexis SOJ, KEIZER Martijn VCD, CHRISTENSEN Mads TST, MINARD Sébastien ALM
with 3"40' over peloton. 50-odd Km to run. Harmon and Kelly licking lips at prospect of final descent: narrow and twisty with sheer drops. It's raining...

Twitter saying that Boonen is on the front, but I thought he'd abandoned?

Somebody hold LL. JTL on the front on the climb. Selective and not finished yet.

Confirmed Boonen did his threshold workout.

That was an amazing off for Team Sky, don't have sound on so couldn't tell you who it was, whoever it was in the breakaway.

Oooph this descent is a bit vicious. That was quite a wipe out by Kiriyenka. I was enjoying the display of descending skill.

Small group off front incl Porte but coming back together on flat. Only 13s gap.

This is looking exciting. Are they going to be able to stay away to the finish?

Perhaps no reconciliation. Might hold on to a handful. Last 2Km.

Pleased Porte got pissed off with them all messing about and upped the pace before they were caught.
