The race started at 12:05 PM CUT | 6:05 AM EDT.

Samuel Dumoulin did not start today. The expulsion of Mark Renshaw for head butting at the finish yesterday, leaves 177 riders in the 2010 Tour de France.

At 7:30 Ryder Hesjedal, and 17 others make the 5th escape attempt of the stage – this one sustains. The escape ride out to a 2 minute lead but that is all the Peloton will abide. (no, no extended metaphor today.)

The breakaways split in two now 4 riders in the break and 12 chasing, who are 3:00 ahaed of the main group.

Right now the breakaway of 4 including Ryder Hesjedal, are 45 seconds in front.

Ryder Hesjedal is the only rider in the breakaway who is a threat in the General Classification. If the race ended now Hesjedal would be in 3rd place.
