I just saw clips on steephill, not the whole race, but I thought that Nibali's attack took cojones. He later said that he expected others to go with him, so he was kind of in trouble when he found out that he was doing it alone.
On a race like that I'm sort of disappointed that it just ended in a bunch sprint. Yeah, sometimes they are exciting, but the guys who stay with the peloton throughout, and then use good strategy/teamwork to get to good position for the sprint just aren't as interesting or heroic as the ones who labor all day in the breakaway or who attack from several km out.
Yeah, I know that the winners of these races are always heroes in some sense, and I loved watching Cavendish in his golden age (which seems to have come to a close?), but...
