Good time trial.

I was so glad that Tony Martin held on for the win. After waiting in the hot seat for 3.5 hours, how nice it was.........and Andrew T. held on for 11 th (?) place.....sweet... ahead of Contador and other faves.

When I saw the replay my reaction was " Wow, he took that guy out!" All of the announcers (Bob Roll etc) all felt it was incidental. I was surprised by that.

Good to see Martin overcome his crash and nab this victory. Well done Tony!

Aaaaaaahhhh, a golden shower for Cavendouche. He may not have liked it........but I found it quite refreshing.

Two flat stages and then its to the "hills".....big boy territory. Watch for Contador to close the gap, as well as Schleck. Froome will have to work for this tour. Sky will have to dig deep to keep him in yellow.

Kittel is the new sprinting star.

I thought Cavendish had it lined up even before Phil "called" it for him ( probably to be edited out for the re-broadcast ), but Kittel rode right past him. That's a RACE!

Ater watching the replay many times, it looks like Cavendish barely touched the guy, and he just caved.

He should have been able to take a rub or two in a bunch sprint,
I say it was 50/50.

PLEASE CONSIDER THIS REQUEST!!!!
Do not talk about the Day's Stage Until the Evening...

I don't want to know who won today, I have the tape waiting at home for me and I will watch it after work.

So I have 2 choices,
not look at this thread til after I watched the stage, because of some yahoos that were up at 4:30 am to watch it live.

or that we can discuss yesterday's stage, which was awesome,
and we all have an agreement to not talk about today's stage (not seen yet).

What are you so busy doing at 4:30 that you can't turn the TV on to watch a race?

Sounds like a personal problem to me. Suggestions: 1) go to bed early and get up early to watch the stage 2) stay off the thread until you watch 3) quit your wankin'

Had the line been 25 meters more ahead, Sagan would have nipped them both! Watch his exceleration in the final 50 meters.

Deeeeelightful!
Out-and-out, head-to-head, flat-out sprint defeat for Cavendouche!

I especially loved the "WTF?" look on his face as Kittel blew on by. Priceless!

For this evenings toast to Argos/Shimano and Kittel's victory, a Salvator dopple.

Yes, staying off the thread till after "work" is probably the best advice!

Great pic StahlBro. Heart warming. Thank you.

It's only fitting that I take that picture as my farewell gift from you, the perpetrator of this fine thread, as I depart. Regrettably I will be unable to participate any longer, as I am off to the wilds of Montana in search of fat, gullible, trout.
You folks have been alot of fun, keep up the good work.
See you in a few weeks.

Cavendish blew it, he started to soft pedal maybe 10 meters before the line, thinking he had the win and that's when Kittel went by him. oppps!!

It made my day.

For all you folks out there who think only mountain stages produce great racing, today's stage showed just how sexy racing in the wind can be.
