Mar 7: Paris-Nice, Stage 5: Châteauneuf-du-Pape - La Montagne de Lure, 176km
Sky's Richie Porte has taken the stage and race lead with a massive attack in the last two kilometres of the day's racing to La Montagne de Lure. He finished 35 seconds ahead of Andrew Talansky who had already launched a series of his own attacks before the Tasmanian launched the decisive heart-breaking move. Denis Menchov was second, with Talansky leading the shredded remnants of a lead group holding on for third.
