    Spoiler>:. Karma?

    Some have opined that Cavendish did nothing wrong on the sprint to St. Malo. Others disagreed. Having seen the replay a number of times, I guess I am in the latter camp. Karma's a b-tch, Cavendish.

    Also, looks like as far as sprinters go, there is a new sheriff in town.

    It's over and done with now, the "incident" that is. Cav has been crossed off the starting list for the Boxmeer Criterium in the Netherlands and they say it is because of this incident. I personally think he bumped him hard with his shoulder on purpose, but whatever.

    Karma? No.

    Karma Yoga is pretty much absent in cycle racing to begin with.

    This is simply a case of Cav sucking and Kittel not sucking lately.

    It's hard to tell if Cav is off or Kittel is just improving. Too bad they don't post their data.

    I'm not sure I've ever seen Cav lose in a straight-up drag race like he did today. I couldn't believe what I was watching. Has this Tour spooked him?

    Kittel has really arrived in this Tour with 3 stage wins. He was pulling what looked like a much higher gear than Cav and his pulls looked seriously powerful. At 6'2", 190 lbs, he is a real specimen, especially compared to Cav's short, not-so-imposing physique. Some might say that Kittels first stage win in Corsica was a fluke because the best sprinters went down in a crash, but he is the real deal now...

    If you post w spoiler in the title, the thread will be closed and the title altered. Do it too many times and your access to Pro will =be removed for the duration f the season, so you don't spoil it for those who are planing to watch in time delay/ thread closed
