I agree, he's not much of a sprinter but he's ok in the time trials, that's where he could make up a lot of time too

Richie Porte is out of the Tour after falling in the first 10km, suspected broken collar bone.
José Joaquin Rojas (Movistar) quits. He was also involved in the crash with Richie Porte.
One non starter: Tony Martin, from the crash yesterday I reckon ?

Those cobbles are a killer smiley - sadface
Judging by what I've watched of Cavendish, I think it looks like he's not fully recovered from the injuries he had a short while back, he's missing the sprints badly

I think the competition is younger and fitter these days, Cavendish is not the sprinter he was

I have a sneaky feeling, he'll retire after this tour ?

Me too, I think he's gone as far as he can, he missed the cut off by 28 seconds the other day

The games hotting up! Cav's out for 1, plus loads more. The cut off time was 27/28 mins from 1st over the winning line and Cav was over 1hr and on his own, others were also over the deadline.
Well done Thomas smiley - smileyand Froome also

It was beginning to look like he'd go this way, Geraint's in Yellow, I wonder if Sky will use 'Team Orders' and make Thomas give the yellow to Froome or make Froome work for Thomas. It will be interesting to see

It's going to be fun, I reckon if Ger' gets more time over Froome, Froome will play second fiddle and support him and they'll try to finish in 1st and 2nd placesmiley - smiley

I don't think Sky will play with team orders, as you say, they want 1 and 2 and they don't care what order it is

it's even got the commentators wondering what Sky will do, one option they talked about was just letting the race unfold, more or less leaving it to Froome and Ger' as such ?
