    I don't think it will be enough to keep any of the sprinters from being there at the end. But the last cat 4 may be close enough that the true pure sprinters may not get there as fresh as they want to be.

    I predict a long break with a desperate chase and the break caught in the last 7k of the race.
    Since we're dragging around so many older riders Cipo will emerge from the crowd to
    eke out the win over Petacchi.

    okay that's not gonna happen.
    would like to see McEwan take a stage before he retires (wait for the announcement), but I'd say
    Cav looks good for this one.

    Look for riders from Katusha and Bbox in the break.

    Not even going to attempt to call a winner here. I'll just enjoy the finish.

    the podium winner is of little importance here and over the weekend. The torch will be passed, and come Monday we will see where the +2:00:00 riders end up. I am looking for the #20-#30 riders to move up in the standings.
    I have enough words to get me into trouble, but not enough to get me out of trouble.

    Awesome performance by Cavendish and Renshaw again, very impressive finish. I honestly don't know what Cavendish would do without him.

    I think it's a different skill set that's required to be a great lead-out.
    I'd say with a Renshaw lead-out Renshaw would have a good chance at winning, with a Cavendish lead-out I don't know...

    Renshaw was 2nd to Petacchi in Stage 1 after the big crashes. Nobody was really led out in that one, though. Maybe you should ask what Greipel would be doing in Cav's place right now.

    Fight? I saw a bit of bumping before the last corner. Is that what you mean?

    No TV, showed a short clip of two riders slugging each other after the finish. Looked like hockey.

    From Lance Armstrong's Twitter:
    Apparently 2 riders had some fisticuffs after the finish line and I missed it. Damn! Oh yeah, Cav won. Congrats dude.

    Yep, this is what I was referring to. They said that would get them thrown out of the Tour. I guess we'll see.

    That was a fight? LOL, Quickstep dude punches like a girl! Watching that fight did nothing to change the stereotype of prissy euro cyclists, haha! I'm surprised they didn't start pulling hair!

    That was the only highlight in this otherwise sleepy stage. Three yawners in a row, I'm ready for something else now...

    Carlos BARREDO (Quickstep) vs Rui FARIA DA COSTA (Caisse D'Epargne)

    anyone know what set it off? and will this feature in a Versus cage match preview?

    Great finish!

    Right at the end PnP were talking about someone getting disqualified, but I didn't catch who. Bet it was the Quikstep rider!
    Stupidity got us into this mess - why can't it get us out?

    Looks like Barredo really lost his cool. If I'm seeing this right, he pushed his wheel into Rui Costa's face and then started swinging (such as it was).

    Well, if you let boxers cycle 220km at 45 km/h (or whatever the average was today) before starting to punch each other I doubt you'll get a very exciting fight either...

    Agreed. I'm used to watching hockey. Not much of a fight, but more worked up than I expected to see in cycling.

    I don't think we would see much of a fight even if it was before a race. Maybe a slap, a couple of hair tugs. Maybe a squeal like Evans let out when that guy touched his shoulder.
