    Agritubel up the road again.

    "Frenchmen Nicolas Vogondy (Agritubel) and Mathieu Ladagnous (Française des Jeux) away. At the first intermediate sprint in Tournai, Vogondy crossed the line ahead of Ladagnous, and it was 11 minutes and 35 seconds before Mikel Astarloza (Euskaltel) passed the line at the front of the peloton."

    So Cancellara was OK - he looked like he might have broken his wrist yesterday

    D'ya reckon the slow speeds are indicative of a cleaner peloton, or is it just that none of the teams can be bothered to drive the pace?

    Cancellara - an absolutely amazing attack. Just storming ahead of the sprinters and past the breakaway group... phenomenal.

    Good to see Cavendish in the Top 10 too where he belongs on these stages. Hope to see him a bit higher over the next few days.
