After 6.4km of racing in the 99th Tour de France, the top five is:
1. Fabian Cancellara (SUI) RNT - 6.4km in 7'13.470 (53.2km/h)
2. Bradley Wiggins (GBR) SKY at 7"
3. Sylvain Chavanel (FRA) OPQ at 7"
4. Teejay van Garderen (USA) BMC at 10"

|17:26||Cancellara's 5th win on opening day|
Fabian Cancellara has become the second rider in history to take the yellow jersey for a fifth time on the opening day of the race (equalling Bernard Hinault's efforts). His first victory at the Tour was in Liege in 2004... he's since won the TT at the start of the Tour in London (2007), Monaco (2009), Rotterdam (2010) and Liege - again - in 2012.
|17:24||Another yellow jersey for Cancellara?|
Cancellara has ridden the 6.4km course at an average speed of 53.2km/h. Unless Evans pulls out a super fast final half of the TT, the Swiss rider appears destined to become the second man in Tour history to win the yellow jersey on the opening day five times.
|17:24||Cancellara: 7" ahead of Wiggins!|
Cancellara's time was 7'13.470: he was seven seconds faster than Wiggins and will win the prologue... again!
