Is it just me or did that not look like Cavendish? Neither his face nor sprinting style.

It wasn't him, it was Van Rensberg. I'm sure Cav was there towards the end with Kittel in his wheel (aero helmet is another give away) but both seemed to get blocked in somehow. Need the overhead to know what really happened there, looked messy all the way in with QS coming through very late and DDD going early. I think they saw QS weren't there with 3km to go, decided to chance it and got swallowed up.
