I did that on a rental bike in Majorca because I forgot the brakes are the other way round in Europe.

Gonna say it again because Cav in his prime did stuff like that. Weave his way through a gap that isnt really there and then win.

Phenomenal sprint.

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

Yeah that was like vintage Cav, seemingly nowhere and then just an unbelievable combination of acceleration and manoeuvring to win.

Sagan has just lost the green for the first time ever*

*probably, I've not actually checked

e: nope he gave it up once before in 2015

lost it to greipel in 15 (stage 10), and cavendish in 16 (stages 3, 6-9). in both cases he reclaimed before the end of the race.

Does midstage really count as losing it? He's lost the virtual green.

He could ditch out. It's popular this year.

Wait I thought he held it *exactly* by tying in points with Bennett but having a better general classification time?

Edit: Also, isn't the finish today for polkadot points? I think the green for the day is decided?

The BBC are saying it's a GC countback, but they're unreliable as gently caress when it comes to cycling.

hilly stage so there are max 30 points for stage win (vs 50 on flat or 20 on high mountain).

Yeah the various commentators seem to have got excited for nothing, Sam would have to make up around 10 mins on sagan to take green

Right but uphill finishes are double king of the mountain points instead of sprint points usually.

You guys are right. Guess I never noticed you got those points since there's never any sprinters in the top 20 of those stages anyway.
