NOT GREIPEL!

Kenny Robert van Hummel pipped him at the line!
Tells you everything you need to know about how quick these guys are. Sometimes I wonder if Cav is not that great, but just riding against a really weak level of competition.

Like looking back on Leyton Hewitt and Andy Roddick as world number 1 tennis players.

Yeah Kenny was all over the place, but he didn't knock anyone over so all's fair in love and war.
 
Just watched Kenny "the crab" van Hummel beating Gorilla Greipel.
Nightmare line.
Yesterday, Guardini became unboxed, today boxed.
The nature of sprinting solo, especially on a quite narrow finish.
Imagine if he had a heavy duty train..............

Alby not a happy Astana man

''Last night at the dinner table I was going for [the win],'' Davis said on Saturday. ''And they just said then that the director had a meeting with the Kazaks this morning, and said something different … So … that's Astana.
''That's all I can say.''
There was little Davis could do but dismiss the lack of support he felt he got from his teammates, who are all Kazaks, and look ahead to the final stage.

Greipel you idiot, stupidest way to lose a race. Like Zabel in MSR and Boonen in Scheldeprijs
I don't think celebrating his "victory" 5 seconds after passing the line caused him to lose the sprint...Also easily understandable that he thought he won, considering that 1 m after the line he was well ahead of Kenny. Usually those sprinters miraculously know when they win or not though.
