I can't remember the exact wording but Thomas said in his book that Cav could tell you what was on the advertising hoardings in the last 200m of every stage hes won, and that if you asked him to tell you what happened in any of them he'd more than likely get it right.

It's good when he suddenly veers off to describe the route someone else took through the bunch because it was more interesting than his own sprint. He never looks like he's looking around constantly, but he either is or he's loving good at inferring what just happened from a few scattered glances

Cav celebrated today with exactly the same celebration as his win here before. Which was like 15 years ago or something idk hes loving old.

My Cav green jersey prediction is becoming more likely (i.e. non-zero). Just need Valverde and Froome to step up their GC game.

We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.



Lachlan is about to tackle stage 8 and now I'm getting :tinfoil:. Has any EF rider crashed yet? Is he simply giving them incredible up to date recon?

Cav is 36. I don't believe any of this is happening.

Sneaky that they cancelled the tour this year and are instead showing replays with new commentary and overlay graphics to get the names right.

I didn't think he was as concerned about points as he was stages. I guess they're reconsidering plans based on how strong he looks.
