In some ways, Cavendish makes it look like he's taking candy from a baby! This was his most explosive and emphatic win so far. And even though the Green Jersey isn't decided, Cav's focus will be on repeating as stage winner on the Champs-Elysee.
A quiet day for Alberto Contador and Andy Schleck as they prepare for tomorrow's race against the clock. No change in the yellow and white jerseys, but GREEN goes back to Petacchi. He'll have to defend his coveted color a final time in Paris, but it looks like he's booked a place on the top step of the sprinter's podium.
Tomorrow, it's one more chance for Andy Schleck, but the time trial should seal the deal for Alberto.
And a quick "BTW"- you know it's a 'fashionable affair' when Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz stop by to pay their respects to the riders, and honor the Dynamic Duo of Alberto and Andy.
