kittel. even if cavendish was there and 100% healthy...i think kittel is the premier pure sprinter around now. sagan is obviously a ridiculous talent
but i see sagan possibly headed the laurent jalabert or valverde route in 4+ years.

Were the heck was Greipel!? Kittel is the new Cav, and this showed that Renshaw is nowhere near Sprint material, he stays a lead out man. I like the Giant Shimano team this year.

The crowds were much better behaved today...although there weren't any long, narrow climbs to be clogged.

Still, Andy Schleck's crash was pretty darn crappy and stupid. The guy also got knocked over very hard!

Greipel was way back, it's like he never made it to the front at all.

I was standing in the shadow of the Westminster Clock Tower watching them go by. It was a great day.
