    Cavendish, Greipel, Sagan... Your guess is as good as mine.

    Sagan will be tired from his efforts today, maybe Sky will let Cav have a go since the shouldn't be any threats to the GC on this stage.

    Olympics aside, Cavandish must be pretty hungry right now. And considering he rode tempo today I'd say he's even earned himself a lead out man.

    I was impressed Cav didn't get dropped on those climbs today and also lead for a bit. He might be tired too. Advantage Greipel.
    Climbs like a stone, descends like two...

    Yeah, I'd say Sagan will need a day after his effort today. Greipel and Cav are both pretty motivated for stages right now, and like was mentioned above, Cav's tempo today should have earned him a leadout or two.

    Cav will get dropped on that little cat 3 climb. That's been the M.O of the teams lately. Unless it's dead flat they crank up the cadence on the short steep climbs at the end of the race and shed Cav and the sprinters who can't hang. Greipel and Sagan at the drag strip again. I think Goss's confidence has been broken by all the near wins.

    If they climb slow as yesterday he will stay with the group or will climb decently to chase going down hill. Sagan VS Cav today.

    Well, this seemed like the rest day before the rest day. Farrar took advantage and was ready to sprint....safe for the boy to try one.

    Yeah, it really looked like a bike race there for a while. That was pretty entertaining.

    Two rest days of riding before the rest day of not riding. I was watching the Eurosport feed on my computer...I loved how they got a lot of "this stage is boring" feedback. It was!!! Who won again? Oh yeah, that big-nosed dude. Wednesday can't come soon enough.
