    Tour de France 2016

    So far today, Contador crashed but got back up. His arm was injured, but it's unclear how bad.

    And Cavendish will wear the Yellow for the first time in his career??? Is that right?

    Kittel second, Sagan third (amazing, as usual, all freelancing, no lead-up train).

    Great win for Cav. I don't know if it's all the recent track work he's done to prepare for the Olympics or what, but that burst of speed at the end looked like the Cav of several years ago. When he was young, hungry, and just about unstoppable.

    And yup--his first time in yellow.
