    Oh no, Visconti is just in the second part of the break now.

    The lead group of the break has swelled, with Carr, Eden, Fabbro and Mollema joining

    they are going disgustingly fast up here - it kicks right up where the trees/hairpins are and you just sort of die a little bit.

    Bernal wins

    Evenepoel was 9 or 10 seconds back, I think outside the bonus seconds.

    Bernal should go into pink.
