    I think he felt abandoned by his team. They probably thought pacing him back was a lost cause so close to the finish, but it worked for McEwan.

    I thought he hit a spectator then had a puncture. He's no Robbie McEwen and his team decided to try to get Eisel into the mix. Eisel said before the race the team were concentrating on getting Cavendish up there, so I don't think he can have too many grumbles (othet than with the spectator)

    No doubt he was hoping to do well and could see that his chance was lost. The anger was probably coupled with frustration and disappointment!!!!!!!
     
  7. Unfortunately, when he's looking stressed and angry, he reminds me a lot of Wayne Rooney.

    And that's not a good thing :blush:

    And about as articulate. Maybe if they promised him a good granny bashing after the race he might win a stage... :?:

    It seems he hit the back wheel of Boonen and lost the spokes from his own front wheel!!!!!!!

    I think he's young and he needs to grow up some. His confident but arrogant attitude won't get him anywhere in the peloton.

    Unbelievable, but it gives an interesting insight in what happens during the races and the talking between the riders!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Great insight, I agree!

    I thought Cavendish's post-stage interview the other day was a bit off, slating his team given that this is his first shot. But you can't argue with his results so far this season mind you.
