I'm looking forward to this season between these two. I guess Cavendish could have won stage two also if he didn't get a flat with 1200 meters to go.

that's a pretty heft assumption there about Stage 2

Sorry, I meant stage 3. That wasn't my opinion really. I'm going by what Cyclingnews wrote:
"Briton Mark Cavendish made the winning move, but a flat tyre with 1200 metres to go spoilt his chance for victory."

I think CN is saying the flat ruined his opportunity - i.e. chance - for victory, not that it robbed him of an assured victory.

I've been following Qatar more than I ever have, but it's mainly to check in on Mike Friedman.

It was a close call today -

Lost 2.11 on stage 2.

Three British winners out of four stages :)
You never know, someday we may win something important!

Cavendish certainly got cheeky today:
"Apart from being a victory over Tom Boonen, it was certainly a victory over myself," said the Isle of Man cyclist, winner of four stages in last year's Tour de France (VeloNews (http://www.velonews.com/article/87278/cavendish-wins-a-stage-at-qatar))

Did anyone see him straight after the finish?!?
He was almost crying, repeating "Where's my helper? I need my helper!"
I thought "Oooh, Wiggins is on another team now Mark," then I realised he meant his soigneur...
