And now cav actually have chances to win this one again. The other teams have to make this race a real hell to get rid off cav and the gorilla, is the only way IMO

Andy Hampsten wouldn't be hiding in the team bus in the middle of the race.

Great race today in horrible conditions. Ciolek riding a very clever race, and a win for an African team in one of the monuments.

The bunch were only fourteen seconds adrift. Can't imagine Cavendish is too pleased with the abandonments in his team.

He wasn't hiding in the team bus, they bused the entire field over the passes. It was just too dangerous. The leaders had a six minute advantage over the peloton so that let them re-start 6 minutes ahead.

And once again, the pretty much out-of-nowhere Sky riders dominated the last part of the race. LOL Sky makes Postal look like amateurs. I will LOL at the end of the season when Sky wins all 3 GT's and everyone still believes they are powered by Wheaties and spinach.

What? They rode on the front for a while, then all crashed.

In the first place, they didn't dominate the last part of the race. In the second place, out-of-nowhere? Stannard rode well, but pretty much as you'd expect him to ride. He's been one of the biggest engines on the tour for a while now, he's the British national RR champion, and he can't sprint. Boasson-Hagen is one of the leading Classic hopes, and is a multiple stage winner in the TdF. He was off the back. Thomas is a stage-race winner and multiple olympic champion on the track. He was on the floor.

Out of nowhere? Dominate? I suggest you look up the term "confirmation bias".

Pretty big prediction for a team that has yet to win either the Giro or Vuelta.

Here is my question. Since Chavenel was in the lead group, would that mean Cavendish deliberately didn't fight to get into the lead group? I don't see Cavendish sprinting against his teammate in MSR, when he is trying to build team commitment for his TdF ambitions? Not saying that he could have made it into the lead group, but I wonder if he was even trying to.

Can't say for sure, but if I were the DS I wouldn't fancy Chavanel's chances in a sprint aginst Sagan and Ciolek. So I'd be trying to get Cavendish across. Not so easy to do, though given the shortage of teammates and the severity of that final climb.
