Stretching His Legs
Oops, I got myself out of order with this post. This one should have come before "The Next to Go" and after "Waiting on the Train". Each of the favorites that had remained upright and had made the decisive split had a dig at each other, testing their own legs and those of their rivals. Peter Sagan (Tinkoff Saxo) adorned in his Slovakian National Champion jersey slipped away from Ian Stannard (Team Sky) and the rest as the winds blew and the cobbles rattled everyone's teeth.
