3:58 p.m. With 15km to go, Hamilton is 4:19 ahead of the field. Man... this looks like he may pull it off. Amazin'

3:59 p.m. Hamilton is 13km from the finish... His lead is nudging down a bit, but it looks like it might hold. He is 3:59 ahead of the field.

4:00 p.m. Hamilton is 12km from the finish and is actually 4:08 ahead of the field. He looks like he's hurting, but so are those Telekom fellers leading the chase.

4:03 p.m.Telekom and Quick Step are driving the chase - Even the polka dot jersey of Richard Virenque popped up at the front of the peloton. Still, Hamilton is holding his own. 10.5km to go, he remains at 4:10.

4:04 p.m. Hamilton has passed under the 10km-to-go banner ...that's 6.21 miles for all of you writing in to tell us to do this stuff in miles :-)

He is still 4:07 ahead of the field

4:08 p.m. This is un-frickin-believable.

Hamilton is now 7.0km from the finish and is STILL 3.45 ahead of the field.

4:09 p.m. Folks, he is gonna pull this thing off! This is amazing. He has been on the attack for nearly 140 kilometers, riding with an injury that would have had this commentator curled up in the fetal position weeping in the corner of my room.
Awesome... First Stage Win for TH nmEman
