After a rest day, another flat day in the Tour, another bunch sprint, and
another win for Mark Cavendish Andre Greipel wins! Yay for him, and yay for the Tour. There was another crash involving big names - Fabian Cancellara, Levi Leipheimer, Robert Gesink, and Christian Van de Velde - but fortunately they were all able to continue and didn't lose time. It was most excellent at the end to see Philippe Gilbert attack out on a break with Thomas Voeckler - how often do you see the yellow and green jerseys out on a break? - but they were inevitably sucked back into the peloton. A little more of an incline and perhaps a little better timing and Gilbert would have had a chance.
Tomorrow is another flag day which will probably feature another bunch sprint; look for Cavendish to reassert himself :)
