Another near miss for Farrar. It's my opinion that he will show over the next few years that he is a better classics rider than he is a pure field sprinter. He's got the strength but he seems to lack the snap of a pure sprinter.
From the picture of today's stage, it appears that Tyler was wearing a green jersey, but he's not leading the points competition. Does anybody know what the jersey is and why he is wearing it today instead of the usual Garmin kit?
It was the points jersey. Greipel was wearing gold for being the race leader. Boonen chose to wear the national champion jersey over the green (since he was not the true leader) so it fell to Tyler in 3rd position.
