    Oh Yes Cav Wins!!!!!


    The neighbours must have thought I had finally lost the plot. It looked like he had left it too late at one point but boy did he come good.

    I was sitting at work, reading it on the cyclingnews website as it unfolded. I had to content myself with a slightly more restrained, "Oh, I say!"

    But well done to Cav. This is excellent news.

    ITT?

    I also vaguely remember that the TdF stage was under the influence maybe.

    For anyone who missed it live, (like me :/ ) the video on www.steephill.tv (Giro D'Italia section, Ultimo Kilometro) shows the sprint pretty well.

    Millar D. not R in todays breakaway. 5+ mins up with 4 others but unlikely to stay away on a flat one.
