55km to go as e go through Pateley Bridge. Its time for Cote de Greenhow Hill. 3.3km at an average of 8.2%. Pim Ligthart has got away from the chase behind after coming back from a wheel change. 7'50" gap no as Dimension Data are working had for Pauwels behind.

News from the Giro d'Italia is that Elia Viviani has on stage 3, his 2nd stage in as many days. Modolo and Bennett complete the podium. Dennis, I believe is still in pink.

Rossetto is really starting to struggle out there now. His gap has been slashed by about a minute in the last 12km. The chase behind aren't really pushing. The peloton hit Geenhow and Dimension Data attack the race. Ligthart is still chasing Rossetto. 52km to go, gap at 7'00"

Oh, by the way, Rossetto has won his height in beer, that's 180cm. 50km to go. Magnus Cort Nielsen only has one man left! Kiserlovski attacks, Pades and Van Avermaet have gone with him

Magnus Cort Nielsen is struggling here on Greenhow Hill! Ligthart has been caught by the chasers. Rossetto no leads the KOM jersey overall by the way.

Owain Doull attacks up in the chase. The pace is hard behind. Van Avermaet is pulling all kinds of faces. MAGNUS CORT NIELSEN IS DROPPED!! 47km to go.

Cort Nielsen is riding on his own now. He's in the group behind the GVA group. Bevin pushing for his leader. Ah JLT pull Cort Nielsen back! Van Avermaet isn't done yet though. Otley Chevin is very very hard.

43km to go. The chase group aren't working properly at all. They're 4 mins away fom Rossetto still. The peloton ae around 6 mins down. Cort Nielsen is at the back of the GC group. Rossetto does look to be tying up.

Katusha are really pushing this pace. Cort Nielsen is there, I'm sure, otherwise Bevin would be drilling it on the front. 40km to go. 5'50" gap.

The peloton are now getting closer and closer to the chase group of Bookwalter and co. The pace has eased a bit though in the peloton. Ben Swift tries a move. Aqua Blue and Sky join him. 36km to go, time to make my way down to the finish line!
