    What's that about a spectator getting knocked down by a racer ? Didn't get to watch, I just saw a headline somewhere.

    I think that was stage 3 nearing London. A fan was out in the road taking pics and he got walloped by a rider. He went down hard. They say fans trying to take selfies were a big problem in the England stages.

    Pretty good sprint finish today. I didn't think Kittel was going to catch Kristoff, who went way early, but Kittel just has to much power for these guys. Sagan admitted he can't get past him on sprint finishes, so he just catches his wheel and holds on for second or third...

    All things considered, Sagan hauled ass on that finish. He fell down, got back up, sprinted, and still came in 4th on a very busy sprint finish.

    Kittel must not be interested in the green jersey though, Sagan wasn't even contested on the sprint points in the middle of the race, either that or Kittel can't sprint uphill.

    Yeah, I hate interesting stages that are enjoyable to watch. It's too bad there's not 4 more time trials so the entire tour could be decided on the first day.
