Well that was a nice change of pace....the race was actually mildly exciting this year!
Sure, the sprint stages (i.e. most stages) are mind-numbingly boring (especially having to listen to Uncle Phil babble on!), but the two hilltop finishes were exciting and the last day's breakaway almost overturned the apple cart completely.
When they still had over 2' w/ ~7km to go, I thought there was no chance they were going to bring it back.....
Good start to the season!
