Houffalize - Men's 1st Lap
Trish Sinclair (Marin) has taken over reporting duties! At the end of the first lap in the men's 5 lap race, there is a trio at the front: Christophe Dupouey, Marco Bui and Miguel Martinez. 30 seconds behind them is a group containing Filip Meirhaeghe, Bas Van Doren, Jose Hermida, Christoph Sauser, Thomas Frischknecht and Lado Fumic (plus a few others). Bart Brentjens is then on his own in 12th (40 seconds back), just ahead of Dario Cioni. Canada's Roland Green is next, in 14th place, 50 seconds down. Ryder Hesjedal is just behind, in a group of 10. Trish says that the rest of the Canadians are well back - 50's and higher. Andreas Hestler is the third Canadian, followed by Seamus McGrath.
