Today's 27km time trial in Paris-Nice should give us a clearer picture of who is likely to be crowned winner on the Promenade des Anglais on Sunday.
Twenty three riders currently sit within 29 seconds of Andreas Klöden who leads the race after winning yesterday's stage to Vernoux-en-Vivarais. Klöden, who is no slouch against the clock, has four riders to worry about.
German Tony Martin (HTC-Highroad) and his own RadioShack team mate Jani Brajkovic sit just ten seconds back, while Sky's Michael Rogers and Bradley Wiggins have just 29 seconds to make up.
Not that today's winner is guaranteed of anything. Saturday and Sunday host two more tough stages covering several first and second category climbs each.
