Cavendish is the greatest sprinter
Are you sure ?
I think Greipel is quite good too as a sprinter, isn't he ?
He beat him yesterday

Oh man, what a stage today. What a terrible crash in the last 25 km. So many riders that lost many minutes.

The climbing begins (thank god), but all the falling and crashing has taken away a lot of fun from the Tour.

Great stage today. But kleermaker is right. Without the falling and crashing, especially yesterday, it would look totally different now. But then again, the falling and crashing has always been part of the Tour.

You're partly right. But the last Tours, and especially this one, falling and crashing dominate the first five or six days. That's not the essence of the Tour. And it are always the Dutch who belong to the victims. By big numbers. Do you have an explanation for that, Hansie? If we have a Tour 'favorite' (and we almost never have a serious one), you can bet that his chance will be reduced to zero because of falling in one of those crashes.

Hello,

Just watched the highlights from today: that was painful to look at, never mind cycle! Immense effort by a load of guys out there today.

I dunno how he did it but Froome made the final dreadful 500m look almost straightforward. Frightening!

Congratulations to Bradley on taking yellow: you could see how much it means to him...good for you!

Cheers,

Simon.

Absolutely not. The Tour is still wide open. Looking forward to the upcoming mountain stages

Yes, the Tour is wide open but Team Sky are looking incredibly strong. Barring a major crash, Wiggo is on pace to win.

Several riders have commented on how 'solid' his form is. Plus, he's got a much better team to support him (in my opinion).

That said, I'm still pulling for Cadel! (or Vincenzo Nibali)

Wide open is perhaps a bit too much, but it is still open indeed until the finish in Paris. That said, Wiggins is my favourite now. He seems a special character too, and Tour winners have to be real personalities.

Hello,

Just watched the highlights from today's ITT and am gob-smacked! Amazing ride from Spartacus initially, only to be bested by Mr. Froome and then Wiggo...astonishing performances.

Cadel will never, ever give up- this race is a way off being a done deal. Good job too, as much as I want Wiggo to win!

I am in awe of these guys.

Cheers,

Simon.
