A “belle victoire”……..
You just rode away from them. Awesome!
….and Yes, I know the team put you there, and I know the first thing you did after the finish was go and give the team a big hug, and I know you followed ‘protocol’ and shook hands with the VIPs in the right order, and gave the podium girls the correct kisses…..
….but please dude, learn a little French for the interview. They’d love you even more.

mr Ligget F*** off Stoner,I really thought you were taking the piss! You sounded like the wife watching football ” Who’s winning?” ” The team in red I think” I thought it was very funny and didn’t realise it was genuine, sorry. Still think you should add your insight to every stage win, you would have me gripped.Stoner your Funnier than Ligget already ! and probably as incisive.Posted 8 years agorusty trowelMember
Looked like the Euskatel bloke lost it and Boonen and a load of others had to go straight on. After the crash it was all over, as Cav had two teammates and only Farrar on his wheel. Still, you make your luck and thats why he was positioned at the front, to avoid that sort of thing.
He should win a load more, as it looks like no ones got his pace. Ciolek and Farrar went backwards and i don’t think Freire or Boonen have the legs anymore.
Best 3 weeks of the year. Do you reckon he’ll get the press that Scottish bloke who lost the tennis did? No, thought not.Posted 8 years agorusty trowelMember
Cav should be pretty safe from the French snipers. He was first to sign up to that voluntary salary forfeit thing if they get caught. You’d look a bit silly being juiced up after that. Plus he’s part of the British cycling/olympic programme and they must know the system inside out. Colombia highroad boast about how great their internal systems are too.
I think he’s just bloomin’ quick.Posted 8 years agoCrellMember
markrenshaw1 Yesterday with 3km to go, Piet Rooijakkers (skil shimano) kidney punched me. Is he a:stupid b:crazy c:disrespectful d:all of the above? Cav
Better keep our eyes peeled for today’s ninja move then. Just watched it on the replay – assuming I saw it all. It’s a bit “handbagy”.
If you’ve got Eurosport recorded it’s when Harmon says “Boonen still looking for a way round on the left hand side of the peleton”. You see it from the aerial shot. A bit of pushing then what looks like a good elbow or punch.
Skil have admitted that Piet is on an ASBOPosted 8 years ago
I think Alberto and quite a few others just got caught out today..very strange.The only time a break away was going to work was when the winds favoured it (cross wind) and sure enough they broke away with alot of big guns too far back in the peloton to respond.Posted 8 years ago
I think Cav pushed the fella to stop him getting inbetween him and his teammates on day two which got him a poke in the ribs.
