Paris-Nice 4 Open finish, locked GC

Nothing changed in the GC but it has been a thrilling race with a very open finish. Caught the daily break many attacks started but finally a bunch sprint decided the stage: Meersman open mouth filled the screan. In the last kms Gerrans fell, Kloden excaped - pointlessly but cool - and we saw Monfort safely in the first position. RSNT rider is racing smartly and keeps his 5th place in GC. The top five today looked locked in spite of the all the mess after the last climb.
