What a huge crash. Riders all over the place.

This was very bad. A lot of riders left on the ground.

Edit: Jens Debusschere wins stage 1 out of a small Peloton.

This is often one of the finest small stage races around. Mont Cassel is always fun, but the Le Portel stage looks great too.

I agree. With all the small climbs, it's impossible to control. I'm away at the weekend, but I'll try and catch the Le Portel stage on Friday

Can't find it on UK TV listings unless I'm not looking hard enough? Sure it's been on previously?

Here you can take a look at that nasty crash. Frederik Frison broke his pelvis, Stijn Vandenbergh has a severe concussion. Volderke is also out with bruised rips.

Canola looked really strong on the last cobble section, so was his team mate Filosi. Both seem in good shape and could be real challengers here. Gaudin lost 38 seconds yesterday, he will attack.

Who's giving commentary? Because I think I hear a fat Belgian accent.

Chavanel gave up, Thomas (and Vantomme) pulled through. Thomas' track abilities were helpful for that final pull.

Yep, you can see the track style, a bit like Gaviria at Paris Tours (well no actually completely different, but you see what I meant).

That Thomas is fast for sure. Bravo to him. Nice to see the little guys (although 2x WC ain't little) win some. Great win!
When I woke up and saw the yellow jersey that I had left by my bed the night before, I asked myself: "what are you doing in Merckx's bedroom?" I couldn't believe it - Bernard Thevenet

Mighty Chavanel wins the stage to Le Portel ans takes the lead!

He won this race in 2002 and 2004.
