He went quite a while later so maybe the wind speed/direction had changed.

Questions are being asked by some more cynical watchers already.

British 1st & 2nd in the standings after todays stage, Froome dragged Wiggins all the way and left him by mistake. Nibali tried to go but they just dragged him back, one in the eye for him ;)

The British boys are looking really strong, exciting stuff 8)

There used to be, Tour de France Féminin it was called; but I think the last one was 2009. It folded due to lack of sponsorship.

Both wiggins & froome did very well today, froome especially has been impressive so far.

I'm not going to say anything specific as I don't want to jinx things...but...I've a good feeling about the final result :D
