Taylor Phinney! I don't think I've ever laughed that hard at a post-ride interview. Living in the moment. Go man, go.

Although this is not the clip that had me laughing, this is every bit as good:

Phinney is awesome!

Its interesting that there are only 3 Americans in the Tour. At least 2 of the 3 have done something special already!

Finish line mayhem. The question of the elbow!



(Edit: No longer a question - Sagan DQ'ed)

I disagree....from tree front view of the video I saw, it was iffy but the rear, overhead view made it blatantly obvious that Sagan threw an elbow out there.

As a former ice hockey player, I can attest that that was no elbow. This is an elbow:

Elbow not hitting Cav, whose handlebars are behind the elbow. In fact, his bars may be forcing Sagan's elbow out. Or elbow reflexively thrown so as to avoid tangling, or to keep balance, or to retaliate, in any case, Cav hit Sagan and is off balance and already falling.

I find it kinda crazy how they can ride so long and for so many days. My taint would be hamburger after the first day, couldn't walk, & arms would be jello :oops: :shock:
