    Declerq seems to be on duty to stop anyone else getting away which seems odd so early in the race.

    strong group going up the road
  • Luke Rowe and GVA in the group. Kung as well
  • Siskevicius in the group, who I tentatively put a pound on last night at 500/1
  • Kung down hard on a roundabout.

  • Jordi Meuss also off on the same spot from the peloton.

    The break have now lost both Doull and Kung and the gap is closing.

    Irish favourite Mark O'Hallagh punctures out of the break.

    Skittles. Bit of an insurance claim on the parked car on the outside of the bend. Kung down again, needs to look at his tyre ) pressure choices.
  • Groupama big sliding chute which has Kung tasting tarmac for the second time, even before the cobbles.

    Kung then loses his nerve on another corner and goes so wide he actually had to go behind a parked car.
  • 1km to go!

    Still, at least the tricky wet tarmac is nearly behind them

    Nasty little climb into the first sector.
  • Right, time for the race proper to begin...
