    Anyone follow this race today?

    I missed the last part of the coverage, but it sounded like a great finish - Cavendish sprinting past Boonen (who'd let up a little in premature celebration, apparently) to take victory.

    Details are on Cyclingnews;

    Not a major race (according to the folk discussing it elsewhere) but nice to see some British success on the road as well as the track.

    Superb series of photos in that report too - look at this one, as Cavendish and Boonen both realise what's happened...

  3. I was wondering what the Quick Step team mate, behind Boonen, was thinking...;)

    Quality nice to see Cav getting a win, but then he goes and makes a right nana of himself by falling off the podium flat on his back. Click on Cavenish glijdt uit on the video link.

    Fantastic!

    I was looking for a video link showing the finish last night, but could only find the one of Cav falling over :smile:

    Can't see the video link but never the less it was a good performance from Cavendish, I bet Boonen gave a little curse under his breath when he went past him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had to switch to IE to watch the videos, Firefox wouldn't play the game, dunno why.

    Still, great stuff though I wonder if non-native English speakers would understand a word of what Cavendish said!
