Paris Nice Stage 5: Not Good News

For the break, comprised of Egor Silin (Tinkoff Saxo), Pawel Poljanski (Katusha), Romain Sicard (Europcar), Andrew Talansky (Cannondale Garmin) and Thomas De Gendt (Lotto Soudal), the time keeper's chalkboard did not reveal good news at all.  With 14 kilometers left to race to Rasteau, the board shows only a 50 second advantage on the fast charging peloton.  The racers only have one more small climb to go so the teams of the sprinters are most anxious to put these guys safely back in the fold.
