Scrappy finish, just the way he likes it. And not too often you have Sagan, Greipel, Kittel and Cav in one frame. Good for him.

Contador has hit the deck again today....not shaping up to be a good race for AC.
Just say "NO!" to WCP!!!!

From CN feed: "Contador stands and waits for a spare bike with the quiet exasperation of a man who has inadvertently upgraded to Windows 10".

Anyone else try the nbcsn Tour app? It's changed. Still has no commercials and good live stream,
But
No course profile and map with live tracking
Costs 30 bucks for one year rather than a la carte. So get vuelta and PR
Sign up is sleazy, they force an opt in to spam and the spam opt out is only done later and is very well hidden.

what is Contador down by now, 50 seconds? Not a ton of time, but not good after only two days.
a disaster for Ritchie Port, 1:45 is not good

They were driving hard at the front to set up GvA....wasn't gonna matter much anyway. Less than 5k to go and peloton was in full-flight....he was gonna lose gobs of time no matter what happened.

As for the NBCsports app, check your package with your tv providr....most have access to the app for free if you have the channel in your package. I had to sign out and then sign back in, but it seemed to work perfectly and no sleazy sign-up.

He could have had a new bike in seconds and his teammate endured that very slow wheel change. Might have saved a minute. It's not the nbc sports app, it's the pay extra version with no commercials called nbcsn gold this year that disappoints.

Another Wow! Greipel fist pumped but his face showed doubt.
Cav's train is really good this year.

Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin): "These stages don't do anyone a favour. It will be the same again tomorrow. There is absolutely nothing to gain, perhaps tomorrow nobody will ride away.

"You get much nicer stages if you make them shorter. I believe that this kind of stage no longer belong in the Tour. Longer than 200 kilometers is so outdated. I do not see the use of it."

I wonder if the lower amount of doping is also at play. A few years back seemed like every stage during the first week stage was ridden flat out. Because they could.
