They're joking - it's a CN forum staple for people to notice the 1 or 2 times Cav doesn't win and ignore the multiple time he does.

I'm much happier that inevitable **** ups happen now than in a grand tour, and there's been nothing to suggest he doesn't have the speed to keep winning whenever given a decent go, so c'est la vie.
I agree. He looked a little boxed in today to me, in addition to having to fight his way back to the front from a long way out in the last couple kms.

Still hugely impressive by Sagan though nonetheless. I'm going to get sick of him winning all the time very soon (and probably for many years to come).

He has the best thruster of any one, but looks a little shy to go for in the wet and loose traction...and fall?

I like people jumping to stupid conclusions before the man even says anything. Oh the joy of the internet.

Yeah, today nobody but Cav is to blame for Cavendish not winning. Sagan beat him fair & square. But assuming what the guy says before he gets a microphone in front of him? Grasping at straws chaps

On a side note, I do enjoy the part where people claim Cav is done as a top sprinter with nary a word about Griepel, despite having still beat Andre yesterday & today. Hmmm.

I know, I know, expecting rational reactions from the internet is like expecting a baby to perform long division. Everything has to be BEST EVER or WORST EVER.

Good sprint from Sagan today. Deserves credit for that, beating a strong field.
ladies and gentleman, we have a cavendish fanboy.

Any problem with that?

eta: btw, pretty cute coming from you, of all people.
Ha! Thought the same, but did not think it worth the repsonse.

But, alas, I do have twitchy trigger finger.:D

Cav is no longer a top sprinter. :D

He broke through in a year with no top sprinter and now finally good sprinters are showing up again.

I think it's fair to say that Sagan is the best sprinter, if he ever had a train like Cav at HTC.. Oh boy.
funny, coming from the guy who has said in about every topic for the past year that sagan is not a topsprinter

Has anyone observed Andy? I desperately strained myself to distinguish him and seems like he flashed from one helicopter's shot from 18k to go. Anyone seen him later?

You think that was a serious post? Lol.

Last year he was not a top sprinter by the way.

On reflection I may have been a little harsh on Cav, still a disappointment that he got beat but he's extended his lead on the GC which should give him more breathing space as I can see him losing time tomorrow. It's going to need a monumental effort from the team to keep him in the leader's jersey tomorrow and into next week.

Haven't see it, but how hard were they doing if Cav & Andre survived?

extremely hard, so hard then at one point a guy exploded and alberto had to pass him because he lost the wheel. unfortunately, the climb wasn't steep or long. but it seemed like a repetition for san remo
