    I'm still new to most of this, but I'm guessing the early climbs will not be enough to split the peloton?

    Split? No. There will likely be a breakaway though. It will almost certainly get pulled back in the final 15 K.

    Stage 5 will be similar to today, unless the crosswinds come.

    Des Cavs just not have it? One would think this would tailor made for him.

    Yesterday, it appeared that Renshaw got him right where he needed to be, and then Cavs couldn't deliver.

    Good win by Cavendish today, he does have a much more difficult time this year than last, that was a little onger than he's comfortable with I think.

    Ok, Cavs is off my **** list. He was seriously letting down my fantasy team before today.

    It's nice to see Cavendish just being genuinely happy about a win and cheering like a normal person instead of some idiotic victory pose.

    I liked his humping of Cav's leg after the sprint. For a second I thought I was listening to Joe Buck!

    I liked another one better. Paul was talking about the huge crowds lining the route and Phil said, "Well some of them have no choice. The roads are closed and they can't go anywhere."

    Stupidity got us into this mess - why can't it get us out?

    3 back of Cav, what's Huschov's excuse today?
    I feel like a soiled kleenex dropped in the gutter in the red-light district of Paris.

    Bein interviewed on Norwegian television right after the race he didn't offer any excuse, but said he was very happy for Cavendish and that it was a deserved win.

    He got some more points. Green jersey in Paris vs. a stage win seems like a fair trade-off.

    I don't see why Garmin would lead out Julian Dean. He's fast but he never comes out of the saddle; there's no sudden jump to get someone off his wheel so he's just leading out the next guy. Dean should have led out Robbie Hunter.

    Reports of Cavendish's demise seem to have been greatly exaggerated.

    My wife relayed that to me while we were running around getting everybody out the door this morning

    Phenomenal performance from Renshaw, taking out Frieire and Hushovd on the run-in. Who'd you rather have on your side?

    Cav seriously emotional when talking about letting the team down yesterday. Good boy.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    So when I get home today to watch the DVR, at what point should I start viewing? 5 km. to go, or so? Or is that too far out?
