    Well I should have just slept in on sunday and waited for this to come out. I would have missed nothing except for 90 minutes of commercials interrupted by 30 second intervals of cycling.

    Great work.

    interesting to note that Henderson looked before drifting across to cut Cav/Kittel off
    wasn’t Renshaw DQd for essentially that a couple of years back?

    Another good one. But for once I watched enough Tour footage last week so there weren’t many revelations for me this time. I was really hoping that you’d have found some helicopter footage of the Saxo-created split on stage 13. I wanted to see Cav and perhaps Sagan sprinting their way across the gap. Cav said he put out more watts getting across than in the final sprint that day.

    Adam, leadout men do that all the time. The fact Tom Veelers looked behind him shortly before he drifted to the right, into Cav’s way. It’s probably one of the reasons why Cav didn’t get relegated. Leadout guys all do it but they have to be subtle, or they’ll get caught. During stage 12, Trentin looked back before drifting in front of Kittel as Cosmo pointed out, before getting his comeuppance when he mistakenly celebrated for Cav after Kittel pipped him at the line.

    Stumbled across this randomly – it was rather good.

    Well done you.

    You really make it appear so easy with your presentation but
    I find this topic to be really one thing that I think
    I might never understand. It sort of feels too complex and
    extremely extensive for me. I am taking a look ahead in your subsequent publish, I’ll try to get
    the dangle of it!
