As of 7:30PM, the riders are spread out by nearly 90 miles. The Lamar controle is at the 403 mile mark on the profile below, where several riders are nearing.
That climb after Lamar, has a bark much worse than it's bite -- the gradients for the most part, are very gentle. And once it is crested, the riders will enjoy a glorious 25 mile descent into the overnight controle in Lewisburg. And as you can see from the rider tracking on this profile, your three front runners, Pete H., Kate M., and Victor U. are nearly there already, over 10 hours ahead of the cutoff!
