That bike throw by Sagan. Kristoff clearly didn't see that coming and forgot to throw his bike.
seeing the replay, Kristoff thrown the bike AFTER the finish line, somehow mistimed it completely

The extent to which Sagan is a better bike rider than a pancake flat specialist like Cavendish, it can almost not be stated.
Should have picked another sprinter, someone less versatile. Cav was there in the end and shouldn't be consdered Sagan's antithesis.

Sagan will go down as the GOAT when all is said and done. Scary to think this guy is only 26
It really is this we're talking about, isn't it? I've hardly seen a more complete rider in the years I've watched cycling. He can win flat sprints. He's deadly in punch sprints. He can attack from pretty much any range. He's not afraid of hills or going on the occasional mountain raid. He has the sort of endurance that guarantees him pretty much any points jersey he goes for. I'm not counting him out of any 1-week races except the most mountainous. He can compete in almost any classic race.

Honestly, he's only missing the skills needed for GTs (long TTs and high mountains). Even considering it's hard to look past that, is this the closest to Merckx we've gotten? To think we might still be in for 10 more years of top level Sagan is scary.

LOL Kristoff celebrating his victory and then you get the finishphoto...

what a joke
To me it looked like Kristoff wasn't celebrating but banging on the bars knowing he was beaten

I have been trying to remember who Kittel reminded me of... then it hit me. Anyone here seen 'In Bruges'

'I was trying to rob him, and he took my gun from me which was loaded with blanks, and he shot a blank in my eye and now I cannot see from this eye ever again, the doctors tell me'

that sagan fangirl - much better than colombian Nairo funguys yesterday in Culoz (half-naked guy in his fifties trumpetting on vuvuzela for an hour)
 
Sagan has yet shown he'd even be able to compete at Giro di Lombardia, so he's not even on course of equalling Sean Kelly. Not GOAT just quite yet.. lol. If he's not gonna challenge for GTs he has to at least win all monuments several times to even be close to being considered the GOAT.

What a tour this has been for Tinkoff. Three stages, KOM jersey and a rider challenging for the top 10. I think Contador going out could have been a blessing in disguise - looks like a weight off their shoulders and now they can get fully behind Sagan and Majka.
Same happened in 2014 when Contador dropped out, they took out 3 stages and the Green and Polka Dots, for a team everyone keeps telling us how weak they are they can step up when the team leader drops out

Vino attacks everyone said:
Enger looks like a huge talent for these hard sprint finishes though. Wasn't he sick all last year as well? Makes it even more impressive as it makes him 1 year "younger " as a cyclist
Indeed he was. He also has a lot to improve on when it comes to having a professional diet and training hard all year.

Sagan was still with Cannondale in 2014.
