LPR riders are out of the saddle and driving it. Its fast and the field its strung out. When they come through this time they will have one lap to go!

Still altogether now. No counter attacks at this point. Its too fast. A long line at the front with LPR reall driving the pace. Their sprinter Napolitano is tucked in there ready to strut his stuff.

They are on the other side of the circuit now. Floyd still on the front. It is way too fast for any attacks. Chris Wherry (Health Net) now on the front. Three kilomters to go!

It looked like Gord was leading out Henderson but on the line Henderson sat up to clap his teammate. They achieved two purposes, the stage win and the sprint jersey!
