Wow, what a crazy finish to Stage 1, with the Omega Pharma (correction, it was Orica Green Edge) team bus getting stuck in the finish line, the finish line being moved to the 3km to go banner, the bus finally getting removed, changing the finish line back to the finish line, and the big pile up that delayed or took out Cavendish, Sagan and Greipel! Total Mayhem!! Argos Shimano was fortunate to not get caught up in the crash and did a superb job of providing Kittel the sprint train taking him to the original finish line for the win!

Stage 2 and 3 look like the are going to be good!

Wow, exciting Stage 2 finish! Big props to Bakelants for holding on and taking the stage victory and the Yellow Jersey by a one second margin, and to Sagan for taking second sprinting out of the peloton. I have to admit I am rooting for Sagan in a big way for the Green Jersey so I was happy to see him jump up to second in the classification with 49 points. He put a little gap into the other two main contenders, Greipel @ 30pts and Cavendish @ 25pts. This is going to be exciting to watch!

Additionally, how scenic and beautiful is Corsica... wow!! It's definitely been added to my must visit list now!

More great roads being shown in stage 3. Descents with your name all over them!
I have gone for Cav in my fantasy teams but am kind of regretting it a bit so far. He could be bluffing and I hope he is. Sagan looks strong.

Yeah I want to go to Corsica too - proves the Tour works as intended!

Felt a bit sorry for Millar. Missed out on yellow by a second I think?

Yeah, I am watching the Tour with about a 12-18 hour delay. I need my English commentary and I need my HD! That's one of the reasons I started this thread. I don't want people posting results everywhere willy-nilly. Keep it focused in one place!

fair enough. well, i can tell you who is winning.....
