if you watch the overhead helicopter footage, it looks like graeme brown's abrupt line change caused the crash.

I would hardly call Graeme Brown's change of line abrupt. Boassen Hagen drifted into Brown which caused him to move his line slightly which then had an effect on Koldo. Cooke and Koldo moved towards each other at the same time and collided. It's a sprint- these things are bound to happpen.

What a bizarre finish today. Quite exciting!

Good to hear Farar speak dutch again, makes his post-race interview much more intelligible =)

Andreas Klöden (Astana) crashed in the second stage of the Eneco Tour and has probably broken his wrist.

great accent!

i like renaat schotte as a comentator, but does he have to mention the guy lives in gent every friggin day he's doing a race?

i remember the giro a few years ago when at a certain point i started betting with a friend on the exact time schotte would tell that rujano used to be a coffeeplanter back home.
if he wasn't so repetitive i'd prefer him with de cauwer over wuyts/de cauwer.

Reminds me of the German commentators who always refer to Kim Kirchen the Luxembourger. Some people actually thought that was his full name......

EBH impressed me today, in a break for 40 km and sprinting to a third place finish. Maybe he has a chance to win the overall classification. Also a very good sprint by Farar, he looks very strong.

The key seems to be entering Farrar in a race when Cav isn't around.

Hey, that's not bad when you think about it though. I'm not sure he's second to Cav right now, but he's close to that spot.
 
Yeah.....a good stage, yesterday.
EBH on the attack for over 50kms. Worked over by 3 Rabo's. Nuyens away, but almost pulls him back, then still manages third.
TF continues to raise his profile.
A pity this race has lost much of it's coverage, outside of Holland and Belgium.

Could be a similar sort of stage, today.

I love what that guy does to races.

Yep, Cycling TV's coverage is free today, and live.
Free Belgian (French) feed also available from RTBF - neither of those have a delay AFAIK.

And just saw Farrar get boxed in and lose to a clearly slower Boonen. Oh wel
