    30km from the finish and NBC are showing a hotel-room interview with Marcel Kittel about his hairgel.

    I'm sure his hair cannot stand up to this rain no matter what gel he's using!

    Was hoping the breakaway would sneak away. Oh well. Always fun to see the peleton bearing down on the break with under 500m to go.

    What happened to Kittel in the sprint? Came in 11th. Obviously Kristoff is recovering from the mountains better than Kittel or Greipel.

    Hair doping - improved aerodynamics through "good" looks. Very sneaky.

    Armstrong rode during the Backstreet Boy era and actually had the same opportunities but wasn't paying attention at the time.

    I watched Nibali bust out of Astana and hook into BMC's push for an echelon while Phil & Paul were talking about something else. After the skype-with-Taylor Phinney thing, Bob Roll of rewound to point that out. Epic stage, bummer for the breakaway. And yet, to hear Renshaw afterward, 'I didn't know they were still there, I thought we had caught them several K back'.

    Boy, that was some stage!

    Breakaway out front for 220k's, and they lose at the line! Arrrgh, that hurts.

    Not sure what happened to Kittel as he was nowhere to be seen at the finish. Kristoff all-of-sudden, looks like the new guy at the top of the sprint game. He timed that finish to perfection. Sagan, well, you know the story continues...

    Nice move by BMC to try and breakaway, but man, Nibali flew right into their group and they couldn't drop him. He is quick!
