Stage 5 finish

Weather: At the finish line in Marseille at noon local time it was 19c (66f) and cloudy and going to climb to 25c (77f) and partly cloudy with a 20% chance of rain. The wind was from the north at 8 kph (5 mph) shifting later to 21 kph (13 mph) from the west, but could be as much as 33 kph (20 mph). It's humid, at 88% dropping in the afternoon to 56%.

The Race: Ted King of the Cannondale squad who was struggling with injuries from a stage one crash, missed the cutoff time by seven seconds yesterday. He was hoping for some mercy from the judges today, but was not allowed to start. That leaves 195 riders in the 2013 Tour.

By the stage's second kilometer a six-man break (Yukiya Arashiro, Kevin Reza, Romain Sicard, Thomas de Gendt, Alexey Lutsenko and Anthony Delaplace) was established and in 20 kilometers was allowed to gain an eight-minute lead. The gap eventually blew out to more than 12 minutes but with 94 km to go it had been whittled down to 8min 30sec. Of course, race leader Simon Gerrans' Orica-GreenEdge team was taking the responsibility of working at the front of the peloton.

With 55 km to go it was party over as the peloton's speed ramped up and the gap to the break came down to 6min 43sec. At 46 km to go Orica-GreenEdge partially relinquished the front and Argos-Shimano, Omega Pharma and Lotto-Belisol assisted closing down the break with its 6-minute lead.

Over the top of the Côte des Bastides (30 km to go) the four remaining riders in the break (Arashiro, de Gendt, Reza and Lutsenko) still had 3min 22sec.

The break was absorbed by the Omega Pharma-led pack with a little more than four kilometers remaining, setting things up for a big sprint in Marseille.

While Mark Cavendish beat André Griepel, Peter Sagan and Edvald Boasson Hagen in a big, high-speed drag race there was a large crash further back in the peloton.
