Good win by Venturini, though it seemed like Laporte never truly sprinted at the end - Cofidis and the TDF will have an interesting relationship.

Yes Bouhani's move was, if you weighted by percentage, was 70% a "Foul" but usually the officials let most of those
rated "fouls" go unpunished, not that they should.

He kept his line...

I can understand the dislike for Bouhanni, but not when it is unjustified. If this is a dirty move, then every sprint is dirty.

Went as expected, Valverde won, but obviously isn't at 100% atm. Probably not that close to 100% to be honest after the bit of sickness and first race since Liege as always, he has plenty of time to get ready.

It was more exciting than I expected. But Navarro has shown that he's in very good shape at the moment, so Valverde is definitely not in bad shape

Surprise, Valverde won. He has only not won two week long stage races he started in the last three years, one of them was that Tirreno-Adriatico with the cancelled mountain stage. This year he's won every stage race he started. I wouldn't even have been surprised had he attacked at the bottom and won solo by over a minute.

He looked so easy compared with Navarro and Elissonde.
