Now THIS IS A LEADOUT. Wiggo Swings off. EBH leading out Cav.
Remember EBH was in teh break all day.
Peloton has caught the back of the break, but not the front.
Field is on the back of the field
Cav jumps around Roche and Luis Leon Sanchez
CAV just SHOT PAST the break!
Holy cow! No one could follow Cav at all!
He really really wanted to do that!
he came around Roche and Sanchez like they were TIED TO A STUMP
Wow, that is what we expect from Cav.
That bodes well for London. He just spent two weeks getting bottles for his teammates and then uncorks an amazing sprint.
A bit of hugging between Wiggo and the Missle. Very touching.
Could be a preview of Paris...
Yep. Sagan and Goss were left in the dust there.
Sagan was third; Goss was second.
Goss second, Sagan third.
Ride of the day SHOULD go to EBH. Sprint was impressive, but not often does a rider come back from the break and still give a superb leadout.
Cav must have won by 5 bike lengths.
EBH may be the ride of the Tour. His legions of fans would certainly vote for him.
Top five from letour.fr:
1. Mark Cavendish (GBR) SKY
2. Matt Goss (AUS) OGE
3. Peter Sagan (SVK) LIQ
4. Luis Leon Sanchez (ESP) RAB
5. Nicolas Roche (IRL) ALM
Well, tomorrow we have the Tour's final time trial, where the final result will decide the order on the podium. Will the GC favorites dominate the stage?
Case: of course. jeez, my bad
Logan, I think that's sweat.
"I haven't done nothing this Tour, so I had saved a lot." - Cav
And none of the journalists corrected his grammar? He loves that.
Sky team director originally said that "today will be an easy day for us boys." Cav stood up in the team bus and pleaded for some help in the sprint. Wiggo committed and Froome committed right away.
Water boy was rather subdued in his interview.
Vino will wear the red number of the most combative rider tomorrow.
Brailsford: "We thought it would be a sprint this morning. But the break never really established itself. We wanted to reward Cavendish for the work that he's done the past weeks"
