|17:47||No change to GC: Cancellara still leads the Tour 2012|
It was a sprint of a different nature as Cavendish was not in the mix. He crashed with 2.6km to go. Meanwhile, up ahead his usual rivals all fought it out for the stage and Greipel won the drag race. For all the time spent on their bikes today - over five hours in the saddle - there was no change to the top order of the general classification.
Fabian Cancellara will spend his 26th day in the Tour de France's yellow jersey in stage five.
