This is a summary of the latest results and live text commentary that is being updated live on the road as it happens.
Follow the links below for each stage's commentary and full stage and classification results. Results will be updated as soon as they are confirmed by the Commissaire Panel.
Please note: The content and frequency of updates on this LIVE TEXT COMMENTARY service is dependent on the information provided on the race radio channel, the quality of the Cellular Coverage and the atmospheric conditions. As we are passing through many rural areas in a time of the year when the weather can be changeable, there may be long periods of time when it is not possible to update the web site. In bad weather or on a stage with a lot of activity, radio priority is give to the safety of the riders and sometimes updates on the race are not possible.
