A run-O-the-mill sprinters stage.
Nice to see the boys finally got to play with their lead-out train sets.
Sagan continues to impress me. Starts his sprint after Cav, Boasson Hagen (sp?) and Greipel. Strolls around Greipel, who's maxed out in his sprint, and comes within two pedal strokes of taking Edvald's "best of the rest" 2nd place.
Granted, he was better than a bike length behind Cav, but when Cav jumped, Sagan made up at least three bike lenghts before the line.
The kid's strong and savy.

Good one today.
I was stoked to see Greipel get one.
I hope Sagan is next. 3 second places so far for Peter.

I'm not a big Cav fan. Big whiner just sat up when he realized he wouldn't get first.

Yeah, not a big Cav fan here, and as much as I hate to come to his defence, he got caught-out.
There was a 50 foot stretch of 3% grade at 2k out. It took him a while to catch back up.
not really.
But if you look at the finishing replays, he was about 12 wheels back when Greipel was in his final lead-out. An honest and valiant attempt. But,,HAH! He got gapped and Greipel made him pay.

I don't know what's up with liqui-dale. Seems Peter's left freelancing wheels in his finals. Iregardless ; he should be in the running for best-of-the-rest jersey. Three 2nds, oh my.

Brilliant tactics today. Not only for the stage win and green jersey, but for the polka-dots as well.
Mountains are in the forecast with a chance of selections...bout time!

Whee hoo! Cannondale controls the stage.

I was a little worried that they used too much juice on the run in, especially when Degancolb went and Peter was several bike lengths back, but Peter just punched it and "see ya."

Woot, Sagan is the next best "sliced bread"

I'm enjoying every stage in this years tour. Nothing better then the unexpected outcomes like Jan Bakelants and the awesome team displays that the TTT and Cannondale showed today.

This is my World Series, Superbowl and NBA finals all rolled into 3 weeks of partying in France.

Chapeau

Yeah, Froome dominated. I thought Contador had one more stage in him, but I guess not. Alright Dave, make the call for tomorrow.
