    Quite a shame we don't have any of BlueBull's Google tracks today. I'd love to see some details of today's terrain under these conditions.

    • 18:03 Bikes: Rodrigues' turn to get lost

      Hélder Rodrigues didn't take the same wrong turn as all the leaders, but he's quickly made amends by turning right a bit later and losing loads of time.
    • 17:57 Bikes: The riders lose their bearings

      118 km into today's special, all the leaders on the course are straying off the right path. They're all heading towards the mountains instead of following the river, as they should. It looks like Hélder Rodrigues and Paulo Gonçalves are the only ones who are still on track, but some of the leaders seem to be backtracking.

    Don't forget that this is the stage before the rest day - usually very, very hard.
