live coverage just started. haven't found a ticker for the race, and no tweets until now that the race has gone live.
grey day for the race. earlier crash involving three riders, didn't catch the other two, but mick rogers DNFed holding his right shoulder. hope that's not a broken collarbone.
as we join the race in progress, 69km to go with a gap of 3.22 to the break composed of Barbé, Barle, De Vreese, Castroviejo, Vermote y Thurau
