Stage Three: Still Second.

07 Jul

Unlike Paris, here’s something London doesn’t see every day, nor every year:  The Tour de France rolling into town.  While rainy weather made for a wet welcome, it certainly didn’t keep tens of thousands of fans from filling the sidewalks around Buckingham Palace and beyond.

Stage 3 out of Cambridge ended with not only a second stage victory for Marcel Kittel, but an ironic second second-place finish for Peter Sagan.  What is it with second for Peter?  Surely it doesn’t thrill him, sprint classification aside.  In any event, at least he’s on par with last year’s Tour, when he came in second THREE times before his first stage victory.  His first one this year, safe to predict, is imminent as he carries his “still second” status.  We won’t say again who was absent from London’s royal sprint finish today… ahem. 😦  Moving on now, across the Channel.
