You could have staked a large amount of cash on Urtasun being in the break after I transferred him out  31

Some live updates are available here:

although most of the commentary seems to be coming directly from https://twitter.com/RealStephens

And there's tracking and other bits and pieces on the ToB website:

Watching highlights 'package' on ITV4 I was fascinated to learn that the combativity prize is sponsored by Rouleur - the cheese maker. Thanks to Hugh Porter for that one.  4

The commentary is shambolic.....Hugh Porter might have been able to ride a bike,but he needs the microphone shoving up his derriere.....  37

The production of results is shambolic too, considering how long it was on air after the stage they couldnt manage to put up a top 10 for the stage, and still nothing.

Farrar being 4th wouldnt surprise me and juts ruin my day even more
