    Well one of the announcers a few days ago said that former HTC lead out Mark Renshaw will join OPQS next season.

    Being the Tour historian that he is, Cav was just trying to give his tribute to Abdu on the Champs for his 5th win.

    That to me was one of the highlights of this tour. I asked myself what type of power does it take to chase down Cav? Kittel is something else. Cav is imho not the clear choice for worlds best sprinter any more. There are now three riders who could claim that title.
    i may have overreacted

    Sprints in 2014 will be great to watch. I root for Cav, but more competition is a good thing. I'm happy to see Kittel come on so strong and Griepel is a threat too.

    Petacchi, Renshaw, Martin, Stegmans could make a pretty strong train in 2014. I also bet Cav won't finish the Giro next year - the Giro + Tour combo didn't work so well for others either this year (thinking Cadel).

    Renshaw, the guy who got tossed out of the Tour for banging helmets.

    Cavendish hit a pot hole near then end of the sprint. Not just a cobble stone. Cavendish was WAY over on the right trying to squeeze past when he usually has the luxury of being on the best line. A combination of a tight last turn and a short sprint to the line from the last turn makes it a REAL advantage to have the best lead out train and to be ahead of your opponents. Given the circumstances I thought Cavendish was making an impressive move but the finishing line was too soon for him.
