Michael MoreCow (aka Morkov) showed us that he’s definitely the most aggressive rider in the tour so far by going out in the breakaway again today. Wearing the polka dot jersey, he proudly also displayed matching polka dots on his bike computer. Points were available for the first 15 over the intermediate sprint point and as the peloton, and the main contenders for the points jersey approached we saw a long lead out of GreenEDGE riders with Matty Goss at the end, but it was all to no avail as Cav would.not.be.stopped and lectured on the way through – narky!
Things seemed to be settling into a chase rhythm then we had crashes, flat tyres, chaotic nervous riders, Gerro into some barbed wire, Sagan changed his bike, riders portaged their bikes around crash sites and Wiggo looked a bit sad to have *not* been caught up in a crash close to the line.
All in all – things are looking better for Cowdel and worse for Wiggo and GreenEDGE as the tour continues.
Sky’s in a bit of trouble really.
