    Where's the American gone? He was top the points before the 5th sprint but he's not there any more. Has he pulled out? :confused:

    Newton in fourth at the moment!

    They keep taking breaks on the interactive. They did it during the womens' RR, was quite funny, you could hear them chatting away not realising they were on air :D

    Points are scored for the sprints, 5 for 1st, etc. If a rider goes off the front and manages to get a lap on the bunch thay get 20 points.

    The German has got 2 laps and has a huge lead now.
