Agreed, 79pmooney -

I never really cared for Cavendish until recently. I love seeing someone appreciate the opportunities they've been given. Showing concern for Ewan yesterday, and his post-race reaction today was gold.

I figured Cav would be an also ran in a few flat stages but wouldn’t have bet on him to win.

Well done.

In a sport that we all have enjoyed since we could walk. A sport that can grant someones wishes and break anothers heart in minutes. This years Tour has done that again in the first four stages. Two rookie stage winners and one in yellow. A polkadot jersey winner who not many heard of before in his first Tour and now one of the greats who many thought was done. Can't wait to see what happens the rest of the way.

Don't mind me, I'm just eating my hat. One bite at a time.

You have to admit that was pretty special when Cav took the sprint. Also all the riders congratulating him. from different teams. I don't recall a rider ever being that emotional. He must have cried for ten minutes. Good for him....

Loved that hard pull by JA, completely sacrificing himself. Real teammates.

Zoot you must have missed stage 2. VDP broke up pretty hard when thinking about his grandpa. Those two were super close.

When he won in Belgium against a strong field I knew he had it in him to win again on biggest stage. LSD - yes always great to see teamwork like JA and VDP are putting in.

All time most Tour stage wins: 1. Merckx: 34 Cav: 31

I didn’t realize far how up the list he was.

VDP got some of those fancy TT wheels Ineos is riding. Credit card payment by AF made to Ineos. Roglic did a fine iTT for his injuries just off Kung.

I see the infamous sign holder has been caught. Now prosecuting this won't be straightforward. Defense will argue that an impartial jury cannot be found, at least not within the borders of France (and probably all of Europe - Ben). Rumors are that there is a monastery high in Tibet that doesn't get satellite coverage. They'll have to decide which is more feasible, bring the monks half way around the world and providing appropriate quarters for them or bring the trial to them (which has the advantage of thinning the potentially hostile crowds a little).

This is not something that requires a jury Ben. It is just for a judge to rule on the evidence and nature of the charge.

You are taking me way too seriously!

And to the race today: winners - Pogacar and Van der Poel. I like. Van Aert did well but just holding serve with Van der Poel means the jersey stays put. I hoped better from Alaphilippe but yesterday's sacrifice for Cavendish might have taken its toll.
