Evans Still Ninth Overall

"We had a crash with Tim Roe before kilometer zero, we had to change bikes with Jeff Louder and we had a puncture with Cadel (Evans)," BMC Racing Team Directeur Sportif John Lelangue said. "Most important today was keeping Cadel out of trouble and in good position." Samuel Dumoulin (Cofidis) won a bunch sprint at the end of 205 kilometers, leading to no changes in the overall standings.
