Oh I’m so conflicted! Last night’s coverage gave us what I think was possibly the best cow spotting of the tour so far, with added bonus Paul Sherwen commentary. But it was the only cow spotting for this stage. Does that make it a good stage for #TeamVaches or a bad stage?
The riders were cycling for almost 5 hours today, through some uninspiring scenery. Eventually Michael Morecow got bored with it too and sped away front he pack in an attempt to get to the finish and into the showers first. From 60 km out he battled alone, through cross winds that split the peloton and on his way up the Cat 3 climb at the end of the stage, only to be caught by the peloton and bumped.
Andrew Greipel took home his third stage win for this tour, closely followed by Peter Sagan and Edvard Boasson Hagen.
