106km to go: Our five-man breakaway are 4min 38sec clear of a peloton that is content to let them go. Meanwhile in the green jersey classification, Sam Bennett has extended his lead by two points over Peter Sagan and three over Matteo Trentin following that intermediate sprint.
117km to go: Our leading quintet are now just shy of four minutes clear of the peloton, which is about to be rejoined by Daryl Impey. It’s pretty flat until they get to the bottom of the hors categorie monster that is the Col de la Madeleine. I’ll be back in a few minutes, to make sure you don’t miss any of the action when things start going uphill.
