Km 216: Boogerd, Armstrong, Ivanov and Bartoli roll off the front, responding to an attack by Boogerd. That's it. Adios muchachos.

210 km into the race, 4:00 Dutch local time. The breakaway is falling apart as some riders tire. The pack is at 2 minutes with Posties working. Mapei is up there as well. Results when I come back from my ride.

158 km into the race, 2:40 Dutch local time: 4 breakaways, de Groot, Van Dijk, Kupfernagel, Schmitz are 7 minutes ahead of the peloton. Wuyts and Westol are stuck in between. Leontien Zijlaard-Van Moorsel won the Women's Amstel Gold.
