Paris-Nice Stage 4 Live Blogging

Paris-Nice continues tonight with Stage 4 taking the riders on a 200 kilometre ride from Brioude to Saint-Vallier on the banks of the Rhone in south-eastern France.

 

American Andrew Talansky of Garmin-Sharp will start the day in the leader’s yellow jersey after the time bonus he received for winning stage 3 catapulted him to a 3 second lead over Andriy Grivko of Astana and Davide Malacarne of Europcar, all of whom were part of the 7 man breakaway that held off the peloton in yesterday’s stage.

 

Local hope Sylvain Chavanel of Omega Pharma-Quick Step is 4 seconds behind Talansky, with Euskaltel-Euskadi’s young gun Gorka Izaguirre a further second back.

 

There are four category 2 climbs and three category 3 climbs in store for the riders today, and you can expect those targeting the overall victory to make sure the pace is high on the climbs.

 

Check back from 11:45pm ACST (12:15am EDT) for the link to the live blog, or head to http://www.theroar.com.au/category/cycling/
