    Hell of a ride by Rohan Dennis and great move by Movistar to get Quintana out early before the winds shifted.

    I am going to stick this thread and a new "NO SPOILERS" thread at the top of General Discussion until TDF is done.

    And we had real racing today!! Big winners Saxo, Sky, and Lotto. Losers were Movistar, Astana, Cannondale, the French, ETQS (how do you make the break and lose the sprint + yellow jersey???). Love the stage, much better than the standard roll around to a sprint that we usually see in stage 2.

    Things I don't understand: Cav having to sprint from way too far out while several team mates present in the lead group.
    Cav sitting up for 4th, while Cav in 3rd would give his team the yellow jersey (Martin).
    Not going to be a happy supper tonight.

    Also ; tomorrow a finisch on the Muur van Huy. In Flesh Wallonie this year the last 30 km were marred by crashes. With all those guys already losing time the push to stay up front (radios) will be even worse. Going to be ugly I'm afraid.

    Jorn,

    I would agree with you but I would also point out that failure to have presence and take advantage of the situation seems to be a trend with ETQS this year going back to some of the classics.

    Greipel was saying that Renshaw went a touch early which forced Cav to go a touch early as well. I didn't stay up to watch but Cav sitting up does not surprise me.

    I think they had Stybar Martin Renshaw to at least bring Renshaw closer to the line. Cav had way too far to go.

    I watched the Ligget/Sherwin coverage this evening, and as they watched the replay of the finish, one or the other of them said something like "Well that's Cavendish. He only races for first."

    I don't think they have done a lead out up to Cavendish standards all season, have they? Just doesn't seem like it is a priority somehow. But this is day 2 eh? And perhaps Martin was thinking yellow?

    Greipel sure liked his Cav lead out though, didn't he? And Sagan once again had a mechanical in the last several kilometers that meant he had to chase back and burn energy before the sprint. And still nearly pipped Greipel. If Sagan had won, would he have been in the yellow jersey? Time bonus math is not my strong suit. Currently he is fourth overall at 33sec., so doesn't seem like it.
