Millar is fourth British winner at this Tour: "Our Olympic road team is all winning stages at this Tour"
We will have the final time gap from breakaway to peloton in just a moment
And the final gap was... 7:53
Still waiting for news on whether or not Goss will be relegated.
I'll have that result here shortly. Standby.
@Jbv77 Because it was a slightly uphill finish, he could have potentially lost time to Nibali (or Froome!)
There's our winner. 17 seconds from the final gap of 7:53, McKennon takes it, as sad as it makes my Tar Heel heart to give a free book to someone in Durham.
Millar: "It whittled down to those five riders after the mountains. My tactic was to try to win the sprint. It's been a horrific Tour for our team. I wanted to prove that we're still here. I wanted to prove that Garmin-Sharp is still one of the strongest teams in the world."
News: Goss was relegated; no points awarded
Sagan has 254 points, Goss has 198, with Greipel third with 181 points
@McKennon Shoot your email address over in a comment. We'll keep it private and check in with you on details to get your copy of "Slaying the Badger."
More points on the line tomorrow, as a field sprint is expected for the flat stage
Today's finish was the first time I've seen Sagan truly get angry.
Merci beaucoup to all for tuning in today. We'll be back tomorrow morning for the expected stage 13 field sprint.
French TV noting that Goss appeared to look under his left arm just before swinging left. Watching the replay, looks like they are correct. Judges ruled correctly, I think.
Betsy: Good question. Goss indeed had 205 points at the start of the stage.
I'm looking to make sure that the 198 number is correct; that's what NBC Sports was reporting
Richard Virenque is interviewing Wiggins on French TV. Think that's a bit awkward, given the fact that Wiggins called Virenque out as a doper in his Guardian column this morning?
Caley: Have they passed out the green sheets for points classification yet? If so, let us know how many points Goss has, please.
They have not, Neal. I'll try to track them down.
Well, we still don't know why Goss seems to have ended up with less points than he started with. We're looking into it.
@ehb You'll have to tune in and see, I suppose. We're also looking at having more surprises for Sunday's stage.
As they say just a couple hours before I jump onto the Velo desk in the morning, last call for ... our book winner to be in touch with an address. @McKennon, send your mailing address to webletters[at]competitorgroup[dot]com and we'll get you sorted. Cheers.
