Any idea how today went? I was at work and didn't have time to watch it on the net this afternoon.

Just caught up with the highlights on itv4 myself after being out this aft watching the Yorkshire Rams

Basically a four man break went away early, Pellizotti, voigt, leonardo Duque and Pierrick Fedrigo. That slimmed down to just Pellizotti and Fedrigo over the Tourmalet and they rode the last 70km downhill to the finish together. Fedrigo just eaking it on the line. The peloton came home 34 secs down.

Can't help but think that the organisers' idea to make Mont Ventoux more exciting and important has made some of the early stages boring and irrelevant.

Back on the road today - Bastille Day!
Its a tough ride through the Massif Central too and should see a group attacking, mostly with the likes of Agritubel, FDJ and Cofidis as its the French's "Big" day. Expect guys like R. Feillu, Voeckler (again!), Pauriol, Chavanel, Auge and Moreau to show their colours at some point. Im going for Nicolas Roche to win today though. He's looked good and got 10th place on Sunday. This kind of stage will suit him more I reckon...

Looks like this could be shaping up to be stage win #3 for Cav

Surprised there wasn't a more concerted French breakaway given that it's Bastille Day but looking forward to a big bunch finish trailing behind Cav.

Cavendish is almost unbeatable in these sprints, that was a procession, he's winning with such ease, gotta be one of the best sprinters of all time.

He is certainly the best at the sprints no one can match him the only way they can stop Cav winning is not to catch up the breakaways...
