In other news, Lance 'Vance' Armstrong finished in the first peloton, leaving supposed primary rider of his team Contador in the back group. Consequently, Armstrong is now the pick of the Astana riders in third overall, sixteen seconds ahead of Contador.
but damn you for spoiling the surprise. It was the bloody Guardian yesterday, now it's DiS. I'll have to ban myself from the internet between the end of the stage and when the highlights are on telly from now on.
Cav for the maillot vert and Champs Elysee win? I hope so. Allez le Cav
why don't the sprint specialists like Cavendish (am I right in assuming that's what he is?) put in some extra training to become good at the uphill parts? I don't like this green jersey business. It's like giving a special trophy to Wigan just because they had the most corners in the season.
Can train all he likes, he's still not getting up those mountains like someone Sastre's size.
Oh and teams want someone who can win stages if there's a bunch sprint cos it gets money and publicity so specialists are always going to be wanted.
Anyway Maillot Vert is more like The FA Cup to the Maillot Jaune's league title.
Sprints are 95% less interesting when you know the winner
